Here is an idea on how you can organize and keep track of all those award cards you have or will receive while involved with scouting. Get a small, one-inch binder and various sizes of plastic sport card holders and sheet protectors. The sport card holders work great for all of the cards and sheet protectors are great for all the certificates. I also like to type up a list with all the award names,...[More]

Arrow of Light Award Plaque Procedure written by Melissa Cole, Pack 164, Yorktown Heights, NYThis is not an original project. I used many internet sources to build the final project.Materials needed for each plaque: One piece of lumber, 1” X 6” X 26”. One website I found suggested using red oak, which I’m sure would make a nicer-looking plaque. However, red oak has the following drawbacks: 1) it’s expensive, and 2) being a hard...[More]

Call it tunnel vision or call it arrogance, but many of us in Scouting assume that we’re the only people in the world who take kids camping or cook in Dutch ovens or lead silly games. And so we fail to discover some great non-Scouting resources that can improve the programs we offer. Take the games we play at troop meetings. Church youth groups all over the country also play games, and many of...[More]
