How to build your own camp kitchen

Posted on Apr 23 2016 - 9:51pm

Boy scouts use these to keep the camp supplies organized but there's reason a family who likes to camp couldn't use this crafty gadget, Details are here: http://boyslife.org/hobbies-projects/projects/31755/build-a-chuck-box/

Scouting for Food

Posted on Apr 17 2016 - 10:11pm

We're collaborating with our big brother Troop, 513 to organize a food collection within the Park Hills neighborhood. Saturday, April 30th we'll need drivers to shadow boys while they run house to house collecting donations. They'll put the donations in your vehicle and the donations will then be delivered to a local food shelf later that day. Not every driver needs to go, so organizers will share logisitics the day of the event. Contact your den leader for information how to get involved.

STEM, NOVA, & STEMSCOUTS

Posted on Apr 17 2016 - 10:04pm

http://blog.scoutingmagazine.org/2015/05/11/understanding-the-difference...
The above article is really great at breaking down the difference between STEM in Scouting and STEMSCOUTS (a pilot program that will hopefully make its way here soon).
The article touches on the NOVA and SUPERNOVA awards. These can be earned by Cub Scouts. The first award is a patch which you can then earn devices for. At some point in the progression you can earn the SuperNova award which is Olympic medal big - like it's so big Flavor Flave would be jealous.
There's a series of awards the boys can earn, throughout their scouting career - the highest of which can only be earned as a Venture Scout (a scouting program for boys and girls ages 13-22).
Anyway, if you believe the scouts would benefit from more STEM in our curriculum, check out the awards and the requirements here: http://www.scouting.org/stem/Awards/AboutNova.aspx
At the Cub Scout level, an interested parent is all it takes to introduce the curriculum to the boys. At the Boy Scout level and higher, an adult must be working in the respective field to be a Nova/SuperNova Mentor.
These awards are fairly new, and they're suprisingly rare.
