There's Magic in Music
Bang the drums, toot the horns, and strike up the band. The musical requirements contained in the Showman activity badge are a great way to introduce Webelos Scouts to an experience that is both fun and stimulating.
Spark, Spirit, and (George) Simmons
From Watts in Los Angeles to the inner-city area of Portland, Ore.--where he has been Scoutmaster of the same troop for 32 years--this Scouter has built discipline and self-respect in each new generation.
Pancakes for Profits
A California troop shares its recipe for a successful money-earning event that can fund a year's worth of unit expenses.
Professional Scouting: A Woman's World, Too
Women seek careers as professional Scouters for the same reasons as men: to serve the community by bringing character-based values to as many youth as possible.
Stewards of the Forest
Harvesting and selling Christmas trees helps these Colorado Scouts learn forest management, develop community good will, and earn camping and activity fees.
It's Show Time
The stage is all the world for the cast and crew of Post 619 in Omaha.
