BE PREPARED. Eagle Scout from late 60’s here. Order of Arrow recipient. Scouting is the best experience ever and still guides me today. Very proud to be in a group of esteemed people.
Philmont was an unforgettable experience. Survival training, hiking the mountains carrying you own provisions(protecting from wildlife, bears) and the fellowship, amazing.
Listed in Eagle Scout Registry.

It's a bit frustrating to see so many Cub Scout packs in my area that are on the verge of failing and can't keep kids interested. I've asked or own pack leader to consolidate with another struggling pack 10 minutes away but it fell on deaf ears.


Sounds familiar..... I made it to Philmont, and drifted away after that. That was amazing experience. One of the best of my younger years. My son now has zero interest in scouts. None of his friends are in, so that probably has something to do with it. Different times. I’m glad I did scouts for as long as I did.

I absolutely loved Scouting and learned so much that served me well as an adult. I have twin 2-1/2 year olds and hope they will join scouting and follow in their father's foot steps.
Well, my boys did join Cub Scouts as Tigers. We just moved up to the Webelos den. I was Den Leader for a year and a half, then Assistant Cubmaster for 6 months, and now Cubmaster for the last year+. I've got another 18 months or so to go before my twin boys cross over into the Troop. We are having a blast!

I loved Scouts when I was a kid (back in the 70's). The troop I was in was sorta paramilitary oriented. Inspections before each meeting and push-ups were in order if you were out of line. Still had loads of fun and experiences and everyone paid attention a respected the Scout Master. Tried to get my son into it back in mid 2005 and the dens in my area at least were a joke. Kids screaming and running around and learning nothing. Half never showed up in uniform and their parents would drop them off and leave knowing that they had a little monster and expect the poor Scout Master to babysit while them went on their merry way. Ended up taking him out and just teaching him all that stuff myself.

Who all remembers this:

On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight. Page#27 BSHB

I wish more people would follow this today!

My wife sometimes laughs when I "do a good deed daily" but at 73 I still want Scouting to continue in my Grandkids.

That's burned into my memory. One of those things I'll NEVER forget (so long as my noodle is still al dente).

How about this one: A Scout is courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.

I almost cannot stand to read the news anymore, breaks my heart to see the inflammation In our county. Kids today need, more than ever now, the roots we all share. To understand it’s okay to not be such an individual but work as a team Like scouting help teach us.

Eagle Scout here, 1992. Multiple staff at summer and high adventure camps (Philmont, Hansen, Sumners). Bear den leader for a pack right now and will be completing my Woodbadge Ticket items by the end of this month.

Scouting is different now and I “get” why....but I also thing the program itself and the values it can teach are needed now more than ever.
