Everything you should know about #Scouting in #Canada, and occasionally other places.

    Encore Presentation: So, You're Going Camping...

    Encore Presentation: So, You're Going Camping...

    A discussion of packing lists: what to include on them, and why they're important.

    Podcast Topics
    Parker rejoins the podcast and chats with Ken about packing lists. Because while it's nice to think that Scouts might be mature enough to know what to bring along on a trip, and while it might be tempting to test one's Scouts by making them suffer through the consequences of forgetting some key piece of gear, the truth of the matter is that just about everyone — even adults! — can and will benefit from having a list to refer to when the time comes to put together all the gear one will need for an adventure.

    Scouts BSA has published some excellent, if generalized, warm weather and cool weather packing lists; Ken's own Group has also developed a list that it maintains internally and periodically updates.

    Important Note: By all means, make use of the above-linked documents...but only use them as templates. Always pack according to your troop's needs, and your individual needs as well.

    Ukraine

    Are there things Scouts can do — wherever they are, right now — to help out people in Ukraine?
    Podcast Topics
    Ken and Colin discuss the ongoing war and humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, and comment both on what Scouts in the country (and in surrounding countries) are already doing to help out the many millions of refugees that have fled (or are trying to flee) their homes, and what Scouts in other countries can do (and are already doing) to help out in their own way.
