Boys' Life Preview

Boys' Life magazine helps make your Scouting program and your Scouts excel. Research shows that boys who subscribe to the magazine advance farther, spend more time outdoors, and stay in Scouting longer than those who don't.

Check out these exciting articles scheduled for publication in the January and February 2010 issues of Boys' Life.

Where the party started early

Packs, troops, and crews across the country are celebrating the BSA’s 100th Anniversary throughout 2010, but Scouts in Oshkosh, Wis., started the festivities last fall. At the Great Lakes Centennial Jamboree, 10,000 Scouts from five states enjoyed rock climbing, an obstacle course, kayaking, canoeing, and monster tricycles—which were tougher to ride than you might think. Find this story in the February issue, and get your guys in the 100th Anniversary spirit.

You Didn't see anything

Not all of the lights above Area 51 near Groom Lake, Nev., belong to alien spacecraft—some of these flying objects are the top-secret property of the U.S. government. The base and its practices are heavily guarded, but in its January issue, Boys’ Life takes your guys inside for the scoop on these stealthy spy planes.

Chill of Victory

Grab a seat by the fire, because it’s almost time for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. The February issue has all of the info your boys need about the different sports and some of the U.S. hopefuls, including Eagle Scout Steve Holcomb, who steers for the American bobsled team.
