Ha! Sure would be a little difficult, but I suppose you could drag a sled across the sand, no? Or does it lose too much of the effect?

We go to one every Winter and to be honest I can only remember one that had snow on the ground. Most of the sleds have wheels on them here. But its usually cold as its held in January or Feb. The main thing is the boys work together and solve problems or do fun things at the various stations.

Chief Scout Ryan here from the 1st Morinville Scouting Movement. Started back in the early 80's. A lot fun back then, but could not convince my oldest to get into it (he's more of a sports kind of guy anyway). Maybe when my girls get older I'll see if they are interested in girl guides. Spent many a cold night camping outdoors in northern Alberta. Good times

I was in scouting for a long time. Even after I was too old to be an "official" scout I continued to help the troop out. Some of my fondest memories as a youth were spent camping with troop 777 in Rosewood Heights, IL. I remember camping in the coldest of February with our sleeping bags insulated in straw bales for the Klondike Derby and great summers at Camp Warren Levis in Godfrey, IL. The friends I still enjoy are some of my former troop members. I think kids today don't understand what they are missing.

A Cub Scout, then Boy Scout here. That was long ago, but very much fun.
Besides the knowledge, skills & camping, I learned to always "Be Prepared".

Troop 48 Lynchburg, VA just completed their 7th Annual Brunswick Stew, Saturday, January 19, 2013.
We use two 65 gallon pots, wood fired. The scouts earned 100% of the profit to be used for summer camp or a high adventure trip. Their portion is determined by the number of hours they work.

Eagle Scout here. Pack and Troop 285, Raytown, Missouri from 1983 to 1991, then joined the Air Force in 1992. Camp counselor from 1989-1991 at H. Roe Bartle Scout Reservation in central Missouri. Yeah, I still enjoy passing the wilderness survival skills onto my daughter, but now we have a Pinnacle 36REQS. So much for roughing it!

I was in the Webelos and Boy Scouts back in the early 70s. Now that I think about it that was a long time ago. A great experience and my time in both groups provided me with knowledge and skills and ethics I still use today.

I was a former scout as well and was a den leader. A lot of great memories, especially going "squab hunting" on initiation camping trip!!

Now my grandson and son-in-law are looking to get in to scouting when my 5 year old grandson is old enough.

Greetings all,
Father of two boys, aged 10 and 12. The 10 year old is one week of crossing over from WEBELOS to the Troop. The 12 year old is a Life Scout. I have served as a Cub Scout Leader, Assistant Cub Master, and Cub Master. Currently Assistant Scout Master and Unit Commissioner. In my "free time" I have taken Wood Badge, Powderhorn, and served on Camp Staff as Health and Safety Officer.
My boys and I camp with the Troop every month, but we are looking forward to picking up the White Hawk 28 DSBH this month!
