2nd Annual 100 Days of Scouting

(Cake decorations by BSA licensee DecoPak through your local bakery)

This time last year, we celebrated the 100th Anniversary of Scouting with the BSA by launching the 100 Days of Scouting program.

The idea was to capture the big and little things we do every single day for Scouting--and maybe more importantly to make sure no day passed that didn't advance the cause.  Each day we shared those things with you.

Tough? Youbetcha.  But completely worth the effort.

Today begins the 2nd Annual 100 Days of Scouting!

I hope you will join the many dedicated Scouters who are blogging about this, reporting it on Twitter (#100daysofscouting) and sharing their love of Scouting with us.

Start here.

The Flood

Our troop's PLC has planned a great campout for next weekend:
The Flood

You are camping at Wolf Gap when...a flash flood strikes!  Most of your gear is swept away...

Your adult leaders are downstream fishing...You can't make contact with them.

No one at home knows you might be in trouble, and won't begin to search for you until Sunday.

What will you do?  How will you survive?  

Do you have the skills to keep warm, prepare food, make shelter...stay alive?
The idea was prompted by an exercise in last month's Wilderness Survival them (see Troop Program Features).

What do you think?  Something your Scouts would enjoy doing?
