The adult side of camp........

Here is an awesome article on how to run a boy lead program.  I would love to run a program like this or should I say I wish I had boys that took on their true responsibility.

Overworked Scouts

Here is an interesting article on overworked Scouts.

I wonder with the coming of the "world at my fingertips" (internet, cell phones, , text messages, IM, 24 hour news cycle, etc.) if boys are not just overworked and over distracted by life.  My cell phone will probably disappear when I am not longer a Varsity Coach.  I hate people being able to get a hold of me.  :)

Trails to Testimony

If you have not read this book, you need to.  This is a great book for running an LDS unit and understanding the relationship between the LDS Church and the Scouting program.  I don't make any money from the sale of this book but it is a great book!  I personally have bought two extra copies and shared those with those LDS Scouters I love.

High Adventure 2011

Here is a quick run down of our High Adventure this summer.  Live on an island, kill chickens and pigs for food, beans and rice to eat if you can't find anything else, etc.  So sort of like Survivor.  So, here are some of the pictures.

The pig at the end of High Adventure as reward.
