Scoutmaster Conference Preparation

A Scoutmaster has an important job in guiding scouts to advance and the scoutmaster conference is a major step in the process. The actual advancement is not the thing - it's helping the scout grow in character that's important. Many scouts can easily learn and demonstrate skills for advancement sign-offs, but picking up on all the other benefits of scouting sometimes does not occur.

If a scout takes some time to reflect on his scouting adventure that has brought him to this scoutmaster conference, he is more apt to feel a sense of accomplishment and set goals for further advancement. Providing scouts with an outline of topics to reflect on is a great help to get them focused on their path through the program.

This page can be completed by a scout and brought to his scoutmaster conference for rank advancement. It should not be required, but should be available for scouts to use as they want. It should be given to the scout at least a week before his conference. A scoutmaster that saves the sheet will have a valuable record of that scout's view of scouting over the years - and he might present the sheets back to the scout at his Eagle court of honor or at least refer to them for inspiration.
