Do a Good Turn Daily: A Boy Scout Feature
The prospect of a service project can be daunting, but that can change with proper planning. Instead of dreading service, get creative. If you like sports, why not build a dugout for the local ball field? If you’re a musician, perform at a local hospital. Have your boys check out this article in January for some great ways to get pumped up for the community.

Off the Ground: A Feature for All Scouts
For Troop 776, a summer camp trip out of state meant reaching new heights. Coming from the flat landscape of Kansas to climb the 12,683-foot East Spanish Peak in Colorado wasn’t easy, but the finish was worth the effort. Your boys can follow this group on a 30-mile backpacking trip through rugged terrain and extreme altitude that made this adventure rock. Pick up the February issue for a story sure to inspire ideas for your own troop’s hiking expedition.
