Mentoring for Venturing Crews

You’re probably aware by now that the BSA is revamping all of its programs. Changes to the Boy Scout program are on the horizon for next year, many Cub Scout changes start taking place this year, and changes to Venturing have already taken place.

For those of us already invested in Scouting, it can be tricky trying to navigate the information presented to know if we’re delivering a quality program. That’s why it is always really helpful when BSA releases training materials for us to use in our own units!

Hot off the presses is the BSA’s new “Mentoring for Venturing Crews Facilitator Guide.”

“This training is designed to help Venturers understand how to mentor other members of the crew and appreciate the role mentoring plays in personal growth and leadership for both the mentee and mentor. After completing this training, an experienced Venturer will be able to successfully mentor a less-experienced Venturer through the planning and execution of a crew adventure.”

Happy New Year!

Attention Webelos Scouts! Come join the Pringle Nature Center and earn your Forester, Geologist and Naturalist Activity Badges!

In this excellent program the staff at Pringle will work with your Webelos Den and present the material needed to complete these Activity Badges in a fun and exciting format. It’s really neat to learn from an expert, and everyone enjoys the activities from passing around Tree Cookies to exploring the nooks and crannies of the Nature Center. But you’d better hurry! These program book up fast and sell out – preregistration is required!

Click on the links above to find the registration sheets, or take a look at the handout pages for more information!

Cub Scout Winter Event Patches

Congratulation Cub Scouts, we have the top 5 entries from our Winter Event Patch Contest.

We thank all the participants for their entries. The winner was selection number 4. You made it tough for the committee to decide so we will be displaying all 5 in a unique fashion at this year’s event and the winner will be the patch available at the event.

Stay warm and we will see you in February as we “Defeat the Frozen Tundra”.
