Previewing the January-February issue of Scout Life

Scout Me In!

For more than a century, youth have enjoyed reading the adventures, skills and stories featured in Boys’ Life magazine. Those awesome articles will continue in the next incarnation of the official youth publication of the Boy Scouts of America: Scout Life. In this inaugural issue, read a congratulatory piece for the first class of female Eagle Scouts, and take a look back at some of the best tips from the magazine over its 109-year history.
