Our Crew is going river rafting today on the Huzzah River. The Huzzah is not deep or swift, so we’re looking forward to a nice lazy day floating down the river.
The methods of Scouting are the ways that Scouting’s aims of developing character, citizenship, and fitness in youth are achieved. One of the methods for Venturers is “teaching others”. Teaching others is the best way to really acquire deep knowledge of an area. By sharing their skills with others, Venturers retain their knowledge better and provide service to others
On World Scout Scarf Day, all former Scouts and current Scouts are asked to wear their neckerchief (scarf) to promote the Spirit of Scouting. So wear your neckerchief proudly and do a good turn on Aug 1!
The three aims of Scouting are Character Development, Citizenship Training, and Mental and Physical Fitness. Today we look at how character development is incorporated into the Scouting programs offered by BSA.
Our Crew has been going for about 10 months now and our officers are still trying to determine what will work for the group. Up until now, our meeting schedule has been pretty irregular. Things have been going pretty smoothly for the group, but it seems like regular meetings would help with planning and growing.
Our parish Fall Festival is coming up in a couple of weeks. Our Crew asked if they could do some sort of service project at the event, and it was decided that they would provide some sort of gathering spot for the teenagers. So they are going to have a pavilion type tent which is for teenagers – no little kids allowed.
A mom sent in this question: “Our crew wants to stop the scouts from serving as President in the crew and Sr patrol leader at the same time. Does anyone else have this rule? “
The Crew is planning another activity this meeting. They are all going to church together and then they are heading to the City Museum. The City Museum is often described as a giant playground for teenagers and young adults, so this should be a fun activity for them.
A reader asks ” We are planning my son’s Eagle COH and he also recently earned his Venturing Ranger Award.

Any suggestions? ” First of all, congratulations to your son. Eagle and Ranger! That’s a special accomplishment.
“Group Activities” is one of the BSA methods for Venturers.
This year Fall Fun Rally has been designated the BSA Centennial Year National Venturing Event.
Observe National Lazy Day by taking it easy. Sleep in. Rest up. Watch a movie. Read a book. I have only one suggestion for this day. Take your Nap On Safely training. 🙂
