High Adventure Reflection
The SPL in our troop does a great job of holding a Reflection after most activities so scouts can see how well things went and how we can improve. Reflections are an extremely important part of scouting and I'd recommend promoting them in your unit.
Reflections have been called 'Thorns and Roses' and many other similar terms - basically giving each participant a chance to voice what he liked and did not like about the event. The current BSA training materials promotes the concept of Start, Stop, Continue for reflections.
The leader asks what the group should Start Doing - positive actions which are not yet happening; what they should Stop Doing - actions that are keeping the group from being their best; what they should Continue Doing - things that are being done well and making the group better.

Our troop will be organizing two high adventure trips and a long-term camp this summer. To help with the final reflections after these events, I have a High Adventure Evaluation Form for all participants to complete. The main goal is to help scouts realize that they actually did lead at times, help others along, and accomplished many tasks. Hopefully, they will also come to the conclusion that they did more than they thought they could yet still have room to grow and improve.

Scout On!
