Resources for all Scouting ranks...
It takes youth from 10 to 13 years to progress from Lion to Webelos to Eagle Scout and, along that scouting trail, they are guided by many adults - den leaders, cubmasters, merit badge counselors, scoutmasters, and many other volunteers. Every rank of scouting has a thoroughly designed program that helps to grow a member from one level to the next. It is very important that the adult leaders follow these programs so the scouts receive the most they can from their scouting experience from Cub Scouts to Scouts, and maybe to Venturing.
The program is really an outline with rules and guidelines but also plenty of room for personalization of the game of scouting by troops and packs. The basic foundation is found in the Scout Motto, Scout Slogan, and Scout Aims and Methods. The program leaders (youth and adults) need resources, ideas, and information to make their program fly. We hope you find useful aids here and we would love to hear any new ideas you have successfully used so we can help other groups of scouts succeed.
I was asked by National in Irving, Texas to let you know about ScoutCast - a series of podcasts for Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, and Commissioners. Choose the one that interests you and be sure to notice the 'Archives' link on the far right to hear past podcasts.
View this set of Boy Scout videos explaining the advancement requirements for Tenderfoot, 2nd Class, and 1st Class. They are helpful in explaining the requirements. Or, download videos for offline viewing.
The Boy Scouts of America have created some interesting public service ads and I've found some other scouting videos that are interesting. Take a look at Scouting Videos.
This site began as a way to chronicle the experiences of one small group of cub scouts in Minnesota on their trail from tiger to eagle scouts. We documented our program schedules, advancements achieved, most all of our activities, games played, and skits performed. But, as things tend to evolve, we added more ideas that we thought would be fun to try some day. Soon, it turned into a resource of ideas for scouts everywhere to use. Hopefully, you'll use this site to improve your scouting program.

If there is a separate ceremony recognizing achievement of AoL, he can use the new adventures program to earn just AoL without having earned Webelos rank, but it sounds like that may not fit well with the rest of the den's advancement. It is too late for him to earn Webelos through the old program at this point, since the cut off was June 1.
We wrote one another concerning your Florida Trail hike. Wishing you the best. My long hikes are over for a few years as we've just completed the adoption process on a boy.
If you wish, please update me on your observations of the FT as this is one I will do in the future.
I have read all of the literature I can find on service stars and couldn't find a reference to it on your site (which is unusual). My question is: what is the timeline for the service stars? In particular, if a boy joins Scouting in September, does he earn his 1-year service star on the next September? Or is it based on the Scouting year of June-May?
select the Boy Scouts program, and put in your zip code, you will get a list of Boy Scout troops in or near the zip code.
