Within the <strong>Scouts Canada</strong> program, for example, <strong>Rovers</strong> are for young men and women between the ages of 18 and 26; other national organizations have similar age ranges, though some cap the program at a slightly younger age. Other national Scouting organizations don't have Rover Scouts specifically, but do sometimes have equivalent (or semi-equivalent) programs for youth up to, say, 21 years of age.<br><br> The <strong>Rover Scout</strong> section, by the way, celebrates its centenary this year; this part of the Scouting movement began in 1918.<br><br><a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rover_Scout">According to Wikipedia</a>:</p> <blockquote><strong>Rover Scouts</strong>, Rovers, Rover Scouting or Rovering is a service[<em><a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Citation_needed">citation needed</a></em>] program associated with <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scouting">Scouting</a> for young men and, in many countries, women into their early 20s. A group of Rovers is called a 'Rover Crew'.<br><br>The Rover program was originated by <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Scout_Association">The Boy Scouts Association</a> in the United Kingdom in 1918 to provide a program for young men who had grown up beyond the age range of the Boy Scouts. It was quickly adopted by many other national Scouting organizations.<br><br>...<br><br>The Rover program had its origins in two different schemes.[<em><a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Citation_needed">citation needed</a></em>] The first, aimed at <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boy_Scout">Boy Scouts</a> in the United Kingdom who were aged between 15 and 18 years old, was called "Senior Scouts" which was launched in March 1917 during <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_War_I">World War I</a>. It quickly became apparent that there weren't enough adult male leaders available in wartime, and it was several decades before the <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Senior_Scouts">Senior Scout</a> program was established. The second scheme was the series of 'Battlefield Scout Huts' provided for the recreation of British and <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Empire">Empire</a> soldiers in rear areas of the <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Western_Front_(World_War_I)">Western Front</a>. Related to these was the St George's Scout Club for servicemen, which operated in the English garrison town of <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colchester">Colchester</a> under the leadership of "Uncle" <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H._Geoffrey_Elwes">H. Geoffrey Elwes</a>. From these projects, it became apparent that there was a need for a Scouting-related program that catered for young men, many of whom would shortly be returning from the war.<br><br>The first mention of the term "Rover Scouts" was by <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Baden-Powell,_1st_Baron_Baden-Powell">Sir Robert Baden-Powell</a> in <em>The Boy Scouts <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Headquarters_Gazette">Headquarters Gazette</a></em> in August 1918, and the scheme was fully established by November 1919. Baden-Powell set about writing a handbook for the new scheme, which was published in 1922 as <em><a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rovering_to_Success">Rovering to Success</a></em>. It contained Baden-Powell's philosophy for a happy adult life as well as ideas for activities that Rover Scouts could organise for themselves. It remained in print in various editions in English until 1964 and was translated into many other languages.</blockquote> <p>The <strong>Rover Scout</strong> program in <strong>Scouts Canada</strong> has seen significant overhaul — to the point that even the section motto was changed! — under the <strong>Canadian Path</strong> program; read all about it <a href="http://www.scouts.ca/program/canadianpath/rover-scouts/">here</a>.</p> <h4>Shout-Outs</h4> <p>As always, a big thank you to the folks at <a href="http://www.scoutingradio.com"><strong>Scouting Radio</strong></a> for rebroadcasting Scouting Stuff episodes to their worldwide Scouting audience.

So much motivation and big hearts within our Scouter team, and a great bunch of spunky youth. I am only just realizing, to my dismay, that our group has been floundering financially for years and is below rock bottom. Group is (obviously) very unwilling to help finance our first camp and are being very difficult and evasive in communications. I have kept my brand new team ( except one) unaware of this problem, since it could destroy morale. Oh: another FIRST- first time this group has done Canadian Path in Beavers ( and we are actually loving it)</blockquote> <p><br> This is probably not an uncommon situation, especially with smaller groups.<br><br>If the group isn't being terribly communicative, or terribly supportive at all, then the next best thing to do is turn to the parents and be up front with them. Let them know that the group isn't really going to be able to help offset activity costs at this time, and maybe even survey them as to what they think a reasonable cost would be for a <a href="https://www.facebook.com/ScoutingStuffPodcast/inbox/?mailbox_id=818100204975516&selected_item_id=808295079">weekend</a>-length camp. In particular, there are three dollar-value figures to capture here:</p> <ul><li>The maximum out-of-pocket cost families are willing to pay for a <a href="https://www.facebook.com/ScoutingStuffPodcast/inbox/?mailbox_id=818100204975516&selected_item_id=808295079">weekend</a> camp.</li> <li>The maximum out-of-pocket cost for a day event.</li> <li>The overall maximum amount of additional fees over the course of a year.</li> </ul><p>So, for example: maybe families will be willing to pay $80 for a <a href="https://www.facebook.com/ScoutingStuffPodcast/inbox/?mailbox_id=818100204975516&selected_item_id=808295079">weekend</a> camp, $30 for a day event, and not more than $200 in total for all activities per year. With that feedback, it will be easier to draw up plans for the year, to decide which activities are and aren't within reach.<br><br> Beyond that, it becomes a question of looking for fundraising opportunities: popcorn sales, Apple Day, bottle drives, and other such things. Communication with the Scouting Council covering the area will also be important; Council may have information about additional fundraising options, or places to turn to for grants and donations.<br><br><strong>OPEN INVITATION:</strong> If your group has recovered from being in a similar financial situation, we'd love to have you on the podcast to tell us about how the group was able to turn the situation around.</p> <h3>Shout-Outs</h3> <p>For the second week in a row, <strong>Raul</strong> gets a shout-out. He left a comment on <strong>Facebook</strong>, thanking us for answering his question about the word “woggle” on-air:</p> <blockquote>Ayer, cuando estaba acabando de correr, lo escuché y me encantó el "shout-out"...<br><br>Escuché un mensaje que había enviado preguntando sobre como se escribía una palabra que había escuchado varias veces en el episodio 60... Ken muy amablemente me respondió.<br><br>Pues bien, ayer me hizo mucha ilusión escuchar mi mensaje. Gracias, Ken</blockquote> <p>Second, <strong>Eric</strong> — friend and occasional guest of the podcast, Scouter to the <strong>Northern Lights MedVents</strong> — sent us a message with a happy remembrance of a long-ago camp:</p> <blockquote>Hey Ken and Colin, just catching up on some podcasts, and was listening to Episode 65. Colin commented that Scouts have been solving Escape Room puzzles for decades and it made me think back to one of the 100+ camps I attended as a Scout (100+11??) with the theme Spy Vs Spy. That night time wide game where patrols had to collect the parts of a spy message decoder (a simple circuit board, memory chip, battery, and rudimentary LCD numeric display) that when correctly assembled gave you the message 100+. After close to 20 some years in Scouting, NOTHING has come close to that amazing wide game puzzle...</blockquote> <p>And, as always, a big thank you to the folks at <a href="http://www.scoutingradio.com"><strong>Scouting Radio</strong></a> for rebroadcasting Scouting Stuff episodes to their worldwide Scouting audience. If you're listening to us on <strong>Scouting Radio</strong> right now, let us know; reach out and get in touch.

It (rather humorously) does not detail an investiture ceremony for <strong>Venturer Scouts</strong>, although it does list investiture as one of the various ceremonies that a <strong>Venturer Scout</strong> Company could perform. And for <strong>Rover Scouts</strong>, the exact format of the ceremony is left up to the <strong>Rovers</strong> themselves to decide, though the manual does recommend that the ceremony be preceded by mentoring of the prospective new <strong>Rover</strong> by an older member of the section, and time for reflection upon the principles of Scouting.<br><br> Even so, the manual does put forth as mandatory common elements in all investiture ceremonies several elements, including:</p> <ul><li>The saying of the Promise and, optionally, the Law specific to each Section. For older sections, reciting the Motto is also required.</li> <li>The awarding of the youth's new woggle and necker after reciting the above.</li> <li>Some action or words to welcome the new members to the section.</li> </ul><p>What follows, then, is a discussion of different means of investing youth into Scouting, as well as <strong>Ken</strong> and <strong>Colin's</strong> own experiences both being invested, and performing investiture ceremonies.</p> <h4>Shout-Outs</h4> <p>Firstly, we'd like to give a shout-out to <strong>Benjamin</strong>, who wrote in with a correction for <strong>Episode 67</strong>:</p> <blockquote>Hello,<br><br>I just recently discovered your podcast and I'm loving it so far.<br><br>A small correction on your latest episode, you linked to the World's Largest Fleur-de-Lis on instagram saying it was posted by WOSM. The account that posted it is actually run by the UK scouts.<br><br>Again, love the show, keep up the great work.</blockquote> <p>And another shout-out is belatedly owed to <strong>Dan</strong>, who some months prior sent in the following chart explaining the different names for ghost crests of various colours:</p> <p><img src="//scoutingstuffpodcast.podbean.com/mf/web/kyvz24/ssysk-69-crests.png" alt="ssysk-69-crests.png" width="660" height="480"><br><br> Thirdly, we'd like to give <strong>Raul</strong> a shout-out, for his question about the pronunciation of the word “woggle”:</p> <blockquote>Hello, Ken, good evening ,<br><br> I'm still listening to your podcast. Now I'm listening to episode 60: All about neckers. <br><br>I liked how little I understood (my English is still insufficient) the explanation about the folds of the scout handkerchief: beavers, wolves, etc.. I found it very interesting. <br><br>I'm curious about a word you say several times, but I can't identify it. You say something like "walgo" or "gualgo". but I don't know how to spell it. Listened to from minute 32.</blockquote> <p>And as always, a big thank you to the folks at <a href="http://www.scoutingradio.com"><strong>Scouting Radio</strong></a> for rebroadcasting Scouting Stuff episodes to their worldwide Scouting audience.

It's not new, but it's a significant upgrade for the <strong>MedVents</strong> even so, and it's very generous of <strong>AHS</strong> to donate something as expensive as an ambulance to further <strong>Vocational Scouting</strong> in the province.<br><br> And, again, by request, <strong>Kristine</strong> wants to give a big shout-out to “all the Beavers who attended Damboree” last June. She notes that “the obstacle course was challenging, and perhaps the most challenging part was climbing over the net. But every single Beaver in attendance tried their best and attempted to make it through all of the obstacles. Special thanks to the Scouters and parents who helped with encouraging through the kids through the course!”<br><br> As always, a big thank you to the folks at <a href="http://www.scoutingradio.com"><strong>Scouting Radio</strong></a> for rebroadcasting Scouting Stuff episodes to their worldwide Scouting audience.

Episode 66 - The LDS Exit
<h1>We take a look at the recent decision by the LDS church to disengage from Scouting in North America, and suggest that community groups prepare to bring on board youth from LDS groups.</h1> <p>----more----<br><strong>Subscribe:</strong> <a href="https://itunes.apple.com/podcast/scouting-stuff-you-should/id1055726073?mt=2">iTunes</a> | <a href="https://goo.gl/app/playmusic?ibi=com.google.PlayMusic&isi=691797987&ius=googleplaymusic&link=https://play.google.com/music/m/I55s77jcgpznvggpop2lucpszm4?t%3DScouting_Stuff_You_Should_Know_-_A_Scouting_Podcast">Google Play</a> | <a href="http://subscribeonandroid.com/scoutingstuffpodcast.com/feed/">Android</a> | <a href="http://tunein.com/radio/Scouting-Stuff-You-Should-Know-p838390/">TuneIn Radio</a> | <a href="http://www.stitcher.com/s?fid=100454&refid=stpr">Stitcher</a> | <a href="https://anchor.fm/scoutingstuffpodcast">Anchor</a><br><br><strong>Download episode: </strong> <a href="https://scoutingstuffpodcast.podbean.com/mf/web/g3c2z8/SSYSK66.mp3">MP3</a></p> <h4>Podcast Topics</h4> <p><strong>Ken </strong>and <strong>Colin's</strong> Scout Group recently received — and granted — a transfer request. That isn't unusual in and of itself; there have been several youth who've transferred to the <a href="https://www.facebook.com/59thedmontonscouts"><strong>59th Greenfield/Royal Gardens</strong></a> over the years. What made this request stand out, however, was that the youth in question was leaving a <strong>Latter-Day Saints</strong> (<strong>LDS</strong>)-affiliated Scout Group, and was looking for a new Scouting home in a community group.<br><br> This is because the <strong>Mormon Church</strong> recently announced — in about May of 2018 — that they would be ending their decades-long partnership with <strong>Scouting </strong>in both <strong>Canada </strong>and the <strong>United States</strong>, effective December 2019. The Church does not partner with Scouting outside of North America, and has been putting together a new, global youth program that will serve the needs of Mormon youth the world over. As such, they won't need to use Scouting as their male youth program anymore.<br><br> Of course, there are hundreds of thousands of youth enrolled in LDS-affiliated Scout Groups in both the US and Canada, and many of these youth will no doubt want to continue on in Scouting. So it would probably be a good idea for Scout Groups to begin preparing now — by assessing whether (and by how much) they can grow their membership, by onboarding new volunteers, etc. — so that they are able to welcome in youth from shuttered LDS groups come late 2019.</p> <h4>Shout-Outs</h4> <p>We'd like to give a shout-out to <strong>Julie</strong>, who left a comment on our <strong>Facebook </strong>post for <strong>Episode 63</strong>:</p> <blockquote>I wasn't able to listen to the entire podcast but found the first 17 minutes interesting, up to the co-ed discussions. I started in Brownies at age 7 and at senior Pathfinder age (13-15yrs) we met a group of Vents through school who lived in our area and 'buddied' up with them to do various activities/camps. the following year we joined vents (and stayed registered with GGC as well) and had some great adventures, we learned from some great adult role models in both organizations. The year was 1988'ish... 30 years later I am an adult member in both organizations with a teen son and daughter who, up until last year where members in Vents and Pathfinders, respectively. This year they are both signed up for Vents/Medvents and looking forward to new challenges and experiences. I did have a chuckle when it was mentioned about cookie selling, a 5 year old in her brownie uniform.. (just a technicality) but a 5 year old would actually be a spark and super cute. Brownies are the next age up, 7+. Moving forward there is the topic of Gender identity. With Scouting being comfortably co-ed in Canada that may or may not pose some scenarios that need to be considered, no major changes to any policy or guidelines. But Guiding will have other issues to consider moving forward. Interesting times to be living in.</blockquote> <p>As well, <strong>Dan</strong> wrote in to tell us about some summer adventures that his family have gotten up to, and to talk a bit about Wood Badge II and practicing starting fires.</p> <p>Furthermore, <strong>Colin</strong> would like to give a shout-out to the various former members of the <strong>59th Greenfield/Royal Gardens</strong> Rover Crew that turned out to help him move recently: <strong>Ted</strong>, <strong>Ian</strong>, and <strong>Jamie</strong>. <br><br> As always, a big thank you to the folks at <a href="http://www.scoutingradio.com"><strong>Scouting Radio</strong></a> for rebroadcasting Scouting Stuff episodes to their worldwide Scouting audience.

A lot has changed since last year: the lanyards and pins that served as rewards for achieving particular milestones in popcorn sales have gone away, and instead, Scout Groups can get a 20% discount on items at their local <strong><a href="https://scoutshop.ca">Scout Shop</a></strong> that they intend to use as popcorn prizes (if you bring in <a href="http://www.scouts.ca/popcorn/dl/kit/incentive-sheet-2018.pdf">this form</a>).<br><br> The <a href="http://www.scouts.ca/popcorn/popcorn.html">product line</a> is mostly the same, thankfully; <strong>Scout Popcorn</strong> is nothing if not delicious just as it is. The packaging has changed a bit, however.<br><br> As well, the Popcorn Campaign Kit is <a href="http://www.scouts.ca/popcorn/scouters.html#kit">now available in an entirely digital format</a>; it includes the order form, goal-setting sheets, thank you notes (something <strong>Scouter Ken's</strong> group had been doing on their own for a while), sample scripts, scholarship information, incentive information, and a review template to be used during and after the campaign to get feedback on how popcorn sales went for your Group.</p> <h4>Shout-Outs</h4> <p>As always, a big thank you to the folks at <a href="http://www.scoutingradio.com"><strong>Scouting Radio</strong></a> for rebroadcasting Scouting Stuff episodes to their worldwide Scouting audience.

And thanks for elevating us, at least for a while, into the Top 10 (in Canada, at any rate); we even topped <strong>Bernie Sanders</strong> for a while!</p> <h4>Shout-Outs</h4> <p>Firstly, here's a somewhat overdue shout-out to <strong>Iona</strong> and other Scouters from the <strong>1st Kinosoo</strong> (Cold Lake) group, several of whom approached <strong>Scouter Ken</strong> at the recent <strong>Beaver Hills/Rivers Edge Cuboree</strong>. <br><br> Secondly, to <strong>Colin Williston</strong>, another listener, who introduced himself to <strong>Ken</strong> at the recent <strong>Alberta Damboree</strong> (which we'll have to talk more about in a later episode). <br><br> Third, to <strong>Dawn </strong>from the 264th Sommerset group. She might not be a listener, but she and <strong>Ken</strong> had a lively discussion about badge trading while <strong>Ken</strong> was running a badge trading activity at <strong>Damboree</strong>.<br><br> Also, to <strong>Gareth Edwards Lloyd-Tolman</strong>, for posting the following question in the 1FBSG:</p> <blockquote>Is there anyway I can directly download this podcast cast as an mp3?</blockquote> <p><strong>Answer:</strong> yes, from now on we will post links for direct MP3 downloads in the show notes at <a href="http://ScoutingStuffPodcast.com">ScoutingStuffPodcast.com</a>. <br><br><strong>Scouter Eric</strong>, one of the advisors for the <strong>Northern Lights Medical Venturers</strong>, left us a 5-star review on <strong>Facebook</strong>:</p> <blockquote>So much good info to binge on...Also love getting to know a bit more about BSA stuff (even though this is a Canadian podcast)</blockquote> <p>Thanks for the review, <strong>Eric</strong>!<br><br> And <strong>Scouter Corey</strong>, who has been on the podcast before, <a href="https://instagram.com/p/BkNC5oWHIhU/">sent a link</a> to the podcast's <strong>Instagram</strong> account. <a href="https://instagram.com/p/BkNC5oWHIhU/">Click on through</a> to see a lashed-together, water wheel-powered rotisserie; now <em>that's</em> camp cooking!<br><br> Finally, <strong>Parker</strong> would like to give a shout-out to <strong>Troop 216</strong>, his troop; they're based out of <strong>Frisco</strong>, <strong>Texas</strong>. <br><br> And, as always, a big thank you to the folks at <a href="http://www.scoutingradio.com"><strong>Scouting Radio</strong></a> for rebroadcasting Scouting Stuff episodes to their worldwide Scouting audience.

Not only did the <strong>MedVents</strong> provide first aid support at the <strong>Cuboree</strong>, they also used it as a training opportunity...springing a surprise on the junior <strong>MedVents </strong>and the Offers of Service that were working security at the site. And one of <strong>Ken's</strong> own <strong>Cub Scouts</strong> volunteered to be the victim in the scenario!<br /> <br /> Also discussed is how to plan for first aid at a large summer event, and what to encourage Scouters from attending groups to do in advance to help minimize the risk that one of their youth will need first aid for something that really should have been preventable.</p> <h4>Shout-Outs</h4> <p>Firstly, a long overdue shout-out to <strong>Iona</strong>, who wrote in regarding badges:</p> <blockquote>Have you thought about badges yet? I know like you don’t have enough crazy in your life. But seriously I am a badge person and would buy them. You have the image already that you use for your podcast and if you list them to sell before you make them, you might be surprised from the response(even if badges are a North American thing).<br /><br />Think about it.<br /><br />Thanks <br />Iona<br /><br />Do love your podcasts.</blockquote> <p><strong>Ken </strong>actually got to meet <strong>Iona</strong> in person at <strong>Cuboree</strong>. And, yes, a badge design is being worked on...slowly. How this badge will be made available is still a bit up in the air, but rest assured: an SSYSK crest is in the works!<br /> <br /> <strong>Eric</strong>, meanwhile, wanted to give a shout-out to <strong>Chris </strong>at <a href="https://www.arrkannrv.com"><strong>ArrKann Trailer & R.V. Centre</strong></a> in <strong>Edmonton</strong>, <strong>Alberta</strong>; he generously provided a trailer for the <strong>MedVents</strong> to stay in whilst at <strong>Cuboree</strong>.<br /> <br /> And as always, a big thank you to the folks at <a href="http://www.scoutingradio.com"><strong>Scouting Radio</strong></a> for rebroadcasting Scouting Stuff episodes to their worldwide Scouting audience.

The first goes to <strong>Scouter Colin</strong> from the <strong>264th Somerset-Bridlewood</strong> Scout Group in <strong>Calgary</strong>, <strong>Alberta</strong>. He posted a comment on the <strong>Facebook</strong> post for our most recent episode, noting that his group — sponsored, as it is, by the <strong>Rotary Club</strong> — has a <strong>Rotary Club</strong> badge on the back of its neckers.<br /> <br /> And our second shout-out goes to <strong>Norma</strong>, who pointed out that <strong>Beaver Scouts </strong>in Canada — might like <strong>Cub Scouts</strong> in the <strong>BSA</strong> — do actually have a common necker that they can wear, instead of their Group necker. This used to be a borderless, sky-blue fabric, but the current iteration is somewhat more tartan-like in colour, with a dark border.<br /> <br /> As always, a big thank you to the folks at <a href="http://www.scoutingradio.com"><strong>Scouting Radio</strong></a> for rebroadcasting Scouting Stuff episodes to their worldwide Scouting audience.

Because, in practice, one size won't fit all.<br /> <br /> <strong>Eagle Scout Alternative Rank Requirements: </strong><a href="https://www.scouting.org/programs/boy-scouts/advancement-and-awards/eaglealt/">https://www.scouting.org/programs/boy-scouts/advancement-and-awards/eaglealt/</a><br /> <br /> <strong>Boards of Review Requirements: </strong><a href="https://www.scouting.org/resources/guide-to-advancement/boards-of-review/">https://www.scouting.org/resources/guide-to-advancement/boards-of-review/</a></p> <h4>Shout-Outs</h4> <p>We have had a number of emails and comments come in, which is awesome. So, firstly, a shout-out to <strong>Parker</strong>, who sent us an email:</p> <blockquote>Hey Scouter Ken,<br /><br />I am a former Eagle Scout on the BSA side. I just wanted to say thanks for the podcast, and if you need a guest to represent the BSA side let me know. I'd be happy to do it.</blockquote> <p>We weren't able to get <strong>Parker</strong> on this episode, although we may attempt to revisit this issue and get his thoughts on it in the future.<br /> <br /> Via <strong>Podbean</strong>, we received another comment from <strong>honeyfield10</strong>, this one on <strong>Episode 56</strong>:</p> <blockquote>I agree that Scouting creates friends for life. I have some friends who I grew up with for many years in Scouting, and even though we don't talk as much, I know they are still my friends and will be for life.</blockquote> <p>So our second shout-out goes to <strong>honeyfield10.</strong><br /> <br /> A third shout-out goes out to <strong>Klavs</strong>, who left a comment on our <strong>Facebook</strong> post about <strong>Episode 42</strong>:</p> <blockquote>Just discovered your podcast (yeah, I know, a little late) and have listened more or less non-stop the last couple of days. Driving to work today, I heard the podcast on the motto, and you mentioned mottoes from around the world. Being from Denmark, I was pleasantly surprised when you mentioned our motto, but was less pleasantly surprised by your quote. I can't remember what you said (but it was far from what it actually is, at least for The Danish Scout and Guide Association). Its motto is “<a href="https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/v%C3%A6re#Danish">vær</a> <a href="https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/berede#Danish">beredt</a>”, which is a literal translation of “Be Prepared”...so not as exotic as your quote.<br /><br />Apart from that, it's a great podcast, even for a Dane Scouting in the UK.</blockquote> <p>We pulled a number of mottoes from <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scout_Motto">this <strong>Wikipedia</strong> article</a>, and it would seem we read from the wrong column in that table. Our apologies!<br /> <br /> And, as always, a big thank you to the folks at <a href="http://www.scoutingradio.com"><strong>Scouting Radio</strong></a> for rebroadcasting Scouting Stuff episodes to their worldwide Scouting audience.

This facility, funded my a multi-million dollar grant from a number of major corporations, was the site of <strong>BSA's </strong>2017 <strong>National Jamboree</strong>, and will also be the site of the 2019 <strong>24th World Scouts Jamboree</strong>, which is being co-hosted by <strong>Scouts Canada</strong>, <strong>Boy Scouts of America</strong>, and <strong>Asociación de Scouts de México</strong>.<br><br><strong>Brian</strong> also recaps his experiences at the <strong>National Jamboree</strong>, and discusses why attending the upcoming <strong>World Jamboree</strong> is an opportunity that should not, if at all possible, be missed out on.</p> <h4>Shout-Outs</h4> <p>The first shout-out of the night goes to <strong>Travis Normand</strong>, who sent in a lengthy email inspired by our episode about <strong>Philmont</strong>. In it, he recapped his own experiences at <strong>Philmont</strong>, among other things, and then in such detail that it really only makes sense to invite him on to talk about it in a future episode. <br><br> And as always, a big thank you to the folks at <a href="http://www.scoutingradio.com"><strong>Scouting Radio</strong></a> for rebroadcasting Scouting Stuff episodes to their worldwide Scouting audience.

This episode collects those interviews into a single place, with some additional commentary provided by <strong>Colin</strong>.</p> <h4>Shout-Outs</h4> <p>We'd like to give a shout-out to <strong>Cindy</strong>, who wrote in:</p> <blockquote>Hey Scouter Ken! I really enjoy your SSYSK podcast and have recommended it to my Scouters. I do have a favour to ask: as Group Commissioner of [a Scout Group from Manitoba, Canada] I would like to use/share some of your content at our Baden Powell Banquet next week. Specifically the section from Episode 23 Why the Fleur-de-Lis? This struck a chord with me and I would like to remind our Group to wear their uniforms and the F-d-L with pride. Please let me know if this is ok. I would certainly give credit to you and your podcast during my speech at the Banquet.</blockquote> <p>Of course, we could almost say that <strong>Cindy </strong>didn't need to ask; we put out the content we do in the hopes that it will be shared, and that it will bring some value to Scouts and Scouters on their own journeys with the movement. That said, if you do use our content for anything, we'd love to hear from you about that...not in the sense that we want you to ask for our permission, but because it's neat to have that sort of feedback that, yes, this or that thing we said is being shared with others.<br /> <br /> And as always, a big thank you to the folks at <a href="http://www.scoutingradio.com"><strong>Scouting Radio</strong></a> for rebroadcasting Scouting Stuff episodes to their worldwide Scouting audience.

Other people can search the internet for answers to Travel Questions, such as: Go to the paper town from paper towns and Find the country where internet usages decrease.

Most notably, we were informed by our podcast host, <strong>Podbean</strong>, that we were one of their Top 10 podcasts in the <strong>Government & Organizations</strong> category. So thanks to everyone who has tuned in; we look forward to bringing you more Scouting content in 2018.<br /> <br /> Also, <strong>Regan Coyne</strong> — who has appeared on the podcast a few times before — will be launching her Guiding-focused podcast next month. Its title is <em>This Guiding Light of Mine</em>, and you can find out more about it on <strong>Facebook</strong>.<br /> <br /> This week's episode is in response to a question from <strong>Scouter Glenn</strong>, who asked the following back in October:</p> <blockquote>Our Scout group has never done JOTA/JOTI. What prep or precommunication was required? What activities were planned for the day?</blockquote> <p>Based on our experiences in setting up a JOTI event in 2016, and contributing to a JOTA/JOTI camp in 2017, we attempt to provide an answer.</p> <h3>Shout-Outs</h3> <p>Our first shout-out goes to <strong>Jonathan</strong>, who left a review of the podcast on <strong>Facebook</strong>:</p> <blockquote>Lots of great content about Scouting. It's interesting to follow the podcast from the beginning, as they started during the change to the Canadian Path. It will be interesting to revisit some subjects in future episodes and compare with older episodes. I've learned a lot by listening to all the content. They do a great deep dive when covering a topic. Always gets me in the Scouting mood. I regularly recommend this podcast to others in the movement.</blockquote> <p>And <strong>Mark</strong> wrote in to follow up on something we discussed with <strong>Nancy</strong> a few episodes ago:</p> <blockquote>Hello! I am a Cub Master in TN and just started listening to your podcast. I have become interested in getting a “Scout Express” kit, but cannot find them online. Do you know if this is an item that is specific to Canada, or can I find it here? Any information will help; thanks.</blockquote> <p>As it happens, the “Scout Express” — also known as Scout Trucks, in <strong>Scouts Canada</strong> — can be <a href="http://scoutshop.ca/Item?item=629055712029">ordered online</a> from the <strong>Scouts Canada Scout Shop</strong>. However, we may work with <strong>Mark</strong> to just send him a truck directly.<br /> <br /> And, as always, a big thank you to the folks at <a href="http://www.scoutingradio.com"><strong>Scouting Radio</strong></a> for rebroadcasting Scouting Stuff episodes to their worldwide Scouting audience. If you're listening to us on <strong>Scouting Radio</strong> right now, let us know; reach out and get in touch.

In particular, <strong>Ken</strong> shares a revelation he had — while discussing PABs with his Cub Pack — that not only connects the PABs to the <strong>Religion in Life</strong> and <strong>Spirituality Award</strong> crests (as well as the <strong>Language Strips</strong>), but which may also be effective for other Scouters looking to build youth engagement with this new badge program under the <strong>Canadian Path</strong>.</p> <h4>Shout-Outs</h4> <p>Firstly, we'd like to give a shout-out to <strong>Dan</strong>, who commented thusly on <strong>Episode 50</strong>:</p> <blockquote>Congrats on Episode 50. How does Scouting affect my everyday life? Being a computer system administrator, when planning changes, I try to plan for every possible way things could go sideways. That way even if they go sideways in a way I didn't think of, I'm usually still prepared to respond. Be Prepared: It works! Favourite Scouting memory: When I saw a teachable moment with a youth and another youth swept in and took care of it. Least favourite Scouting moment: when I can see a youth is not having a good time and I haven't found that hook as to why. Of course that turns into a favourite moment when I find the hook and that negative swings over to the positive!</blockquote> <p>And we'd also like to give a shout-out to <strong>Kristine</strong>, who left a review for us on <strong>Facebook</strong>:</p> <blockquote>Love the podcast and keep up the great work. Really enjoying your Scouting 5s.</blockquote> <p>And as always, a big thank you to the folks at <a href="http://www.scoutingradio.com"><strong>Scouting Radio</strong></a> for rebroadcasting Scouting Stuff episodes to their worldwide Scouting audience. If you're listening to us on <strong>Scouting Radio</strong> right now, let us know; reach out and get in touch.

It's a conversation with <strong>Nancy</strong>, a Cub Pack Scouter in the <strong>Boy Scouts of America</strong>, and the discussion is very much about the differences (and occasional similarities) between the <strong>Scouts Canada</strong> Cubs program and the <strong>BSA's</strong> Cubs program.<br /> <br /> We also discuss the impact that <strong>BSA's</strong> recent decision to allow girls to join Cubs will have on <strong>Nancy's</strong> Pack, and get into some detail about how it is recommended that girls be integrated into extant Scout Troops. Surprise, surprise: it's a <em>little</em> different than how we do it in <strong>Canada</strong>.</p> <h4>Shout-Outs</h4> <p>As always, a big thank you to the folks at <a href="http://www.scoutingradio.com"><strong>Scouting Radio</strong></a> for rebroadcasting Scouting Stuff episodes to their worldwide Scouting audience.

We talk for a bit about some ways in which Scouting has changed in <strong>Canada</strong> over the last fifty years, and then launch into an extended nostalgia session in which we recall our favourite — and least favourite — <strong>Scouting </strong>memories!</p> <h4>Shout-Outs</h4> <p>Firstly, we'd like to give a shout-out to <strong>Brian</strong>, from <strong>Australia</strong>, who wrote in:</p> <blockquote>Hi there guys. I'm letting you know that you have at least one listener in Melbourne, Australia. It's interesting to hear about the differences and similarities between the organizations of the BSA, Scouts Canada, and Scouts Australia.</blockquote> <p>And we'd also like to give a shout-out to <strong>Rob</strong>, from <strong>Alberta</strong>, <strong>Canada</strong>, who a) used to work with <strong>Ken</strong>, and b) has been involved with <strong>Scouting </strong>for a long time as well. His letter was a bit long to include in the show notes; you'll have to listen to the episode!<br /> <br /> And as always, a big thank you to the folks at <a href="http://www.scoutingradio.com"><strong>Scouting Radio</strong></a> for rebroadcasting Scouting Stuff episodes to their worldwide Scouting audience.

That's right; our <a href="http://scoutingstuffpodcast.com/e/episode-1-what-is-scouting/">first episode</a> was published on <strong>October 8, 2015</strong>, or just over two years ago. And here we are now, nearing our fiftieth episode, and doing very well indeed; at least on the Canadian <strong>iTunes</strong> charts, <em>Scouting Stuff</em> got as high as #66 on the top 100 <strong>Government & Organizations</strong> podcasts last week.<br /> <br /> Also, Scouter Ken is indeed headed to <strong>Cork</strong>, <strong>Ireland</strong>, and will be there between the 16th and 25th of October. If you'd like to get in touch — whether to hang out, invite him to meet your Scout (or Cub, or Beaver) group, or to turn in a guest appearance on a <em>Scouting Stuff</em> episode — please do get in touch.<br /> <br /> Today's topic is more of an opinion piece; <strong>Ken </strong>and <strong>Colin</strong> discuss the ways in which their worldviews have changed from having met Scouts from different countries. And though we don't ask it in the podcast proper, we would love to hear your stories about this topic as well: how has meeting Scouts from around the world changed <em>your</em> perspective? The upcoming <strong><a href="http://jotajoti.info">JOTA-JOTI</a></strong> weekend is also discussed, albeit briefly.</p> <h4>Shout-Outs</h4> <p>This week, we've got a shout-out for <strong>Nancy Nobles</strong>, who wrote in:</p> <blockquote>On my vacation last week we went to the Scout Shop in Windsor, Ontario. It was a great experience. I would never have done that if not for your show. We got lots of patches. Thank you for all you do. Keep it up.<br /><br />If you ever have questions on the American Cub Scout program, I would be happy to help. I have over 9 years experience.</blockquote> <p>Our apologies, <strong>Nancy</strong>; we weren't able to get you on this episode. But we will be in touch soon; we'd love to discuss the differences in <strong>Cub Scouting</strong> that exist between the US and Canada.<br /> <br /> And as always, a big thank you to the folks at <a href="http://www.scoutingradio.com"><strong>Scouting Radio</strong></a> for rebroadcasting Scouting Stuff episodes to their worldwide Scouting audience. If you're listening to us on <strong>Scouting Radio</strong> right now, let us know; reach out and get in touch.

Great topic! My feeling is the Canadian Path is not jut for the youth. It is also up to Scouters to choose their own path. That may mean turning down some things. Volunteerism is a learned behavior in my opinion. I learned it from my Dad. My pack-aged son is learning it from me. The younger youth also need a proper life balance. My son is a cub helper in colony. He's in pack of course. Swim lesons and house league basketball take up another couple of nights. Yesterday he told me he signed up to be a lunch monitor with the younger grades. He was sad that he couldn't sign up for more than he did due to a conflict with track and field at school. I had to tell him it's ok to not volunteer for everything.</blockquote> <p>We couldn't agree more. Knowing what you can commit to be involved with, and knowing what the limits of your involvement should be...these are both important things.</p> <h4>Podcast Topic(s)</h4> <p><strong>Ken </strong>and <strong>Colin </strong>sit down to discuss a <a href="http://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/wayfinding-tips-tristan-gooley-animation?utm_source=facebook.com&utm_medium=keywee&kwp_0=501001">great article at <strong>Atlas Obscura</strong></a> that talks about various natural methods and signs that can be used to find your way (at least in the Northern Hemisphere), or to spot impending weather changes. And then we talk a bit about <a href="http://www.scoutinglife.ca/2017/09/hug-tree-survive/?scrolled=true">what to do when one gets lost outdoors</a>. <br /> <br /> Also, here’s a photo of the <strong>Cub Scout</strong> handbooks that are mentioned in the episode, which finished printing just before this episode went up:</p> <p> <img src="//scoutingstuffpodcast.podbean.com/mf/web/tatn45/cub-scout-handbooks.jpg" alt="cub-scout-handbooks.jpg" width="1136" height="852" /></p> <h4>Shout-Outs</h4> <p>The first shout-out goes to <strong>Dan</strong>, who sent along his thoughts as a new listener:</p> <blockquote>Hello,<br />I found your podcast a few weeks ago and have enjoyed the past couple episodes. I am now going back to review previous episodes. You are doing a great service to Scouting, Thank you!</blockquote> <p>And a second shout-out goes to <strong>Matt</strong>, from <strong>Australia</strong>, who wrote in again:</p> <blockquote>G'day Guys<br />I am really impressed with what your podcast brings to my knowledge of the world of scouting. It's great because I have so many different ideas that are outside of the resources available to me in Australia.<br /><br />My Scout den is running JOTA JOTI this year and I would love the chance for my Joeys to be able to talk to some Canada Beaver. Could you please let me know what you have planned and maybe we could make a contact.<br /><br />Also if you ever what to talk about how we do things down under I would be keen to talk.<br /><br />Cheers<br />Wobbegong<br />Matt <br /><br />Joey leaders have native animals for scout names</blockquote> <p>Thirdly, a shout-out for <strong>Paul</strong>, who is new to Scouting, and who had a popcorn question:</p> <blockquote>Just started scouting (Scouter Paul of 10th Barrie) also the 10th Barrie treasurer. Went looking for a scouts podcast and found yours. So far great stuff. One question though how do I signup for the Scout/Square partnership to get the $1500 allowance?</blockquote> <p>This is the link to follow for that: <a href="http://squ.re/ScoutsCanada17">http://squ.re/ScoutsCanada17</a><br /> <br /> Finally, as always, a big thank you to the folks at <a href="http://www.scoutingradio.com"><strong>Scouting Radio</strong></a> for rebroadcasting Scouting Stuff episodes to their worldwide Scouting audience.

However, this violates the Code of Conduct for the Credit and Debit Card Industry. You can't charge more for credit card payments legally. Some merchants offer discouts for cash payments but you can't just add the 2.4%.</blockquote> <p>So there's that; don't add a surcharge to your popcorn prices if you're taking <strong>Square</strong> payments!</p> <h4>Podcast Topic(s)</h4> <p>Is there such a thing as too much <strong>Scouting</strong>? We'd like to answer “no”, of course, but in truth, it's very much a “yes”; it is both entirely possible, and entirely too easy, to get in over your head when it comes to being involved in the <strong>Scouting</strong> movement. And this is true for both youth and adults!</p> <h4>Shout-Outs</h4> <p>Our first shout out goes to <strong>Artillerist</strong>, who left us a <strong>five star</strong> review on <strong>iTunes</strong>:</p> <blockquote>It is a great podcast and there is many new things I am learning.</blockquote> <p>And <strong>Scouter Mike</strong> — our guest on the show last week — left us a review on <strong>Facebook:</strong></p> <blockquote>Great conversation with Great Scouters! Learn something new every episode and feel energized and renewed about facilitating the adventure of Scouting!</blockquote> <p>Relatedly, you can apparently leave us reviews on <strong>Facebook</strong>.</p> <p>And as always, a big thank you to the folks at <a href="http://www.scoutingradio.com"><strong>Scouting Radio</strong></a> for rebroadcasting Scouting Stuff episodes to their worldwide Scouting audience.

Scouts have been selling popcorn for a long time, but the sales got a complete redesign this year — the changes brought in by the <strong>Canadian Path</strong> program haven't just affected how youth earn badges or Top Section Awards!</p> <p>As the Popcorn Kernels for their Council, <strong>Mike</strong> and <strong>Carolyn</strong> were only too happy to come on the podcast and discuss all of this.</p> <p>And happily, the hotel wifi where <strong>Ken</strong> has been staying all week mostly didn't cause problems, until the very end of the recording session.</p> <p>Also, here's the link in case you'd like to sign up for <strong>Square</strong>: <a href="http://squ.re/ScoutsCanada17">http://squ.re/ScoutsCanada17</a></p> <h4>Shout-Outs</h4> <p>As always, a big thank you to the folks at <a href="http://www.scoutingradio.com"><strong>Scouting Radio</strong></a> for rebroadcasting Scouting Stuff episodes to their worldwide Scouting audience.

That facet is communication between the leaders. And in addition to stressing how important it is to have an effective communication channel between all your leaders <em>that all of them are willing to participate in</em>, we touch on the need for a succession plan in your group's leadership structure, and also emphasize the benefits of planning weeks or months worth of events in advance.</p> <p>Also, as promised, you can find some information about Scouts Canada's <strong>Scouters Five</strong> concept <a title="http://" href="http://www.scouts.ca/vstk/pdf/elearning-modules/Orientation/Wood-Badge-Module-1-Spirituality.pdf" target="">here</a>, and <a title="http://" href="http://www.thedump.scoutscan.com/scoutersfive.pdf" target="">here</a>.</p> <h4>Shout-Outs</h4> <p>Firstly, we'd like to give a shout-out to whomever nominated <em>Scouting Stuff</em> for inclusion on Podbean's list of <strong>Featured Podcasts</strong> under the <a title="" href="http://www.podbean.com/government_and_organizations" target="">Government & Organizations</a> category. That is a curated list, and for a podcast to appear thereupon, the listeners of that podcast must nominate it for consideration. So, whoever did that: a shout-out to you!</p> <p>And we'd also like to give a shout-out to <strong>Kelly Bruce</strong>, who sent us a message on Facebook.

Strategies to mitigate those fears are also discussed, with additional reference made to <strong>Scouts Canada's</strong> <a href="https://www.scoutinglife.ca/wp-content/uploads/bs/beaver-scouts-camping-booklet.pdf">guide to taking <strong>Beaver Scouts</strong> camping</a>.</p> <h4>Shout-Outs</h4> <p>We'd like to give a shout-out to <strong>Matt</strong>, who wrote in from Australia to comment on the <strong>Be Prepared</strong> episode:</p> <blockquote>G'day! I just listened to your Be Prepared podcast. You guys are great; thanks for a great show. If you made a scarf and would ship it to Australia, I would love to buy one. I'm a Joey Scout assistant leader.</blockquote> <p>Additionally, a shout-out goes out to <strong>Chris</strong>, a Scouter whom <strong>Ken</strong> met at the <strong>Beaver Hills/Rivers Edge Cuboree</strong> back in May; <strong>Chris</strong>, <strong>Ken</strong>, and <strong>Colin</strong> first crossed paths back in 2005, at <strong>Camp Impeesa</strong>.</p> <p>And yet another shout-out goes out to <strong>Chris C.</strong>, who sent in several emails (and thus has been awaiting a shout-out for far too long). Here's the first:</p> <blockquote>Great podcast, keep up the great work.<br /><br />My suggestion for a future podcast episode is working with special needs youth. I realize its a broad subject, but even having a child/youth worker or some other person with a background in child development as a guest who can offer some tips and strategies about youth with special needs and how we as scouters can better identify and understand those needs</blockquote> <p>And here's the second:</p> <blockquote>Another topic I thought of, as I continue to get caught up in the podcasts is a troop wrap up of a year on the path, similar to what you had done with Beavers.<br /><br />I'm interested in hearing other successes on the path, without the negativity that comes from the Facebook group. That candid review, part of that plan do review I read about somewhere.<br /><br />On a side note I appreciate your honesty and forwardness on the episode about respect in sports and what scouting has meant to you. It took that courage we try to instil in the youth and even ourselves.</blockquote> <p>And the third:</p> <blockquote>In response to some thoughts on the be prepared podcast about a necker, I'd go further to suggest a podcast crest made available, even for sale.<br /><br />Can never have too many crests for the blankets.</blockquote> <p>As always, a big thank you to the folks at <a href="http://www.scoutingradio.com"><strong>Scouting Radio</strong></a> for rebroadcasting Scouting Stuff episodes to their worldwide Scouting audience.

Before about 2014, it was mandatory that parents accompany their <strong>Beaver Scouts</strong> on camping excursions, but that requirement was lifted ahead of the new <strong>Canadian Path</strong> program being ushered in. Now, as long as the proper ratio of youth to Scouters is maintained, <strong>Beaver Scouts</strong> can go on camps — even outdoors — without needing to be accompanied by their parents. This can present some challenges, to be sure, but it also gives youth tremendous opportunities to demonstrate personal growth and leadership.</p> <p><strong>See also</strong>: <a href="http://www.scoutinglife.ca/wp-content/uploads/bs/beaver-scouts-camping-booklet.pdf"><em>Beaver Scout Camping</em></a>, a booklet prepared by <strong>Scouts Canada</strong> for the 40th anniversary of Beaver Scouting.</p> <h4>Shout-Outs</h4> <p>We'd like to give a shout-out to the planning team of the <strong>2017 <a href="http://albertabeaveree.com">Alberta Beaveree</a></strong>, both for putting together an excellent camp, and for their resilience and ingenuity in the face of inclement weather.</p> <p>And we'd like to give a shout out to our fellow Scouter, <strong>Rainbow</strong>, who has recently become a listener!</p> <p>And as always, a big thank you to the folks at <a href="http://www.scoutingradio.com"><strong>Scouting Radio</strong></a> for rebroadcasting Scouting Stuff episodes to their worldwide Scouting audience.

We're ranked #165 on the top 200 <strong>Government and Organizations</strong> podcasts in <strong>Canada</strong>, and #72 in the <strong>Non-Profit</strong> sub-category thereof. And we are doing even better in the <strong>United Kingdom</strong>, where we rank #115 and #52, respectively.<br /> <br /> And we're <a href="https://www.podbean.com/government_and_organizations">one of the <strong>Featured Podcasts</strong></a> at our podcast host!</p> <p>So: a big <em>thank you</em> to everyone who listens to the podcast, and who has subscribed to it, and to whomever nominated us to <strong>Podbean</strong> for the featured spot. It's very humbling to see <em>Scouting Stuff</em> doing as well as it is, and it is all due to you...the listeners.<br /> <br /> <strong>Scouting Renaissance in Canada</strong><br /> <br /> Scouting, as a movement, has seen steady growth in Canada; this year, seventeen of the country's twenty <strong>Scouts Canada</strong> councils are on track to see their membership increase. And our own council, Northern Lights, has the highest number of areas with 10% (or more) growth!<br /> <br /> Which leads us to ask: how <em>do</em> you grow a Scout group?<br /> <br /> And in a way, this gets us back to <strong>Retention</strong>. That's a topic we covered a while ago, back in <a href="http://scoutingstuffpodcast.com/e/episode-6-member-retention/">Episode 6</a>.</p> <h4>Shout-Outs</h4> <p>We'd like to give a big shout-out and <em>thank you</em> to the people who've left us reviews on <strong>iTunes</strong>:</p> <p> <img src="//scoutingstuffpodcast.podbean.com/mf/web/afaggq/ssysk-36-review-1.png" alt="ssysk-36-review-1.png" width="1136" height="243" /></p> <p><img src="//scoutingstuffpodcast.podbean.com/mf/web/as6b44/ssysk-36-review-2.png" alt="ssysk-36-review-2.png" width="1128" height="243" /></p> <p><img src="//scoutingstuffpodcast.podbean.com/mf/web/h3psb9/ssysk-36-review-3.png" alt="ssysk-36-review-3.png" width="1115" height="265" /></p> <p>As always, a big thank you to the folks at <a href="http://www.scoutingradio.com"><strong>Scouting Radio</strong></a> for rebroadcasting Scouting Stuff episodes to their worldwide Scouting audience.

Also discussed: the fact that the <strong>Wood Badge</strong> is very much a global phenomenon, with many <strong>National Scouting Organizations</strong> (NSOs) around the world having implemented it. Some NSOs — such as <strong>Scouts Canada</strong> — even make elements of the <strong>Wood Badge</strong> mandatory; Scouters in <strong>Scouts Canada</strong> must complete what is known as <strong>Wood Badge 1</strong> in order to serve as Scouters at all.</p> <p>Completing <strong>Wood Badge</strong> is itself a mark of honour; it confers membership in the <strong>1st Gilwell Scout Group</strong>, as signified by the tan-and-tartan Gilwell Necker. A set of beads is also given to Scouters who complete <strong>Wood Badge</strong>, a tradition that was taken from Baden Powell's time and experiences in what was (at least in 1888) known as <strong>Zululand</strong>.</p> <p>And perhaps most importantly, <strong>Wood Badge</strong> is a means for Scouters the world over to build connections and friendships, and to deepen their commitment to the Scouting movement.</p><h4>Shout-Outs</h4> <p>As always, a big thank you to the folks at <a href="http://www.scoutingradio.com"><strong>Scouting Radio</strong></a> for rebroadcasting Scouting Stuff episodes to their worldwide Scouting audience.

Episode 14 - The Jungle Book (Review)/Good Turn Week
<h4>There's a new Jungle Book movie out; we give our impressions (both spoiler-free and spoilerific).

Do a good turn daily!</p> <p>Also, <em>The Jungle Book </em>is out in theatres now, and we got together with a few of our friends from Scouting to go and see it. It's a great film; not a straight-up re-creation of the animated film, and not a wholly faithful adaptation of Kipling's stories either, but excellent in its own right and well worth a watch. Just maybe don't take your Beaver Scouts/Tiger Cubs to see it; it has some intense scenes and is a bit darker in tone; kids 8 years old and up should be fine with it (with adult supervision).</p> <p>We actually do two reviews of <em>The Jungle Book</em> in this episode. The first is spoiler-free; the second isn't.

Episode 10 - What About Those Other Badges?
<h4>Sometimes, Scouts are awarded badges that aren't merit badges, and don't go on the uniform. What happens if you don't fulfill the criteria for one of those?</h4> <p><a href="https://itunes.apple.com/podcast/scouting-stuff-you-should/id1055726073?mt=2">Subscribe on iTunes</a> | <a href="http://subscribeonandroid.com/scoutingstuffpodcast.com/feed/">Subscribe on Android</a> | <a href="https://www.facebook.com/ScoutingStuffPodcast">Like Us on Facebook</a> | <a href="https://twitter.com/ssyskpodcast">Follow Us on Twitter</a></p>----more----<h4>Podcast Topic</h4> <p><strong>Ken</strong>, <strong>Colin</strong>, and <strong>Ted</strong> discuss those other badges, the ones that get handed out to Scouts (and Cubs, and Beavers) that don't get put on the uniform. These badges aren't merit badges, but rather serve to commemorate different events that the Scouts have participated in (e.g. archery lessons, camps, or even fundraising activities like bottle drives or popcorn sales). The impetus for the discussion comes from an exchange that Ken witness on Twitter, between Scouts Canada and a mother who was upset how her son had, to her mind, been singled out in his troop because he wasn't able to sell any popcorn despite trying.</p> <p>Of course, the discussion ranges from there, and turns into a broader analysis of the philosophy of badge earning.</p><h4>Shout-Outs</h4> <p>Another shout-out for <strong>Alex</strong>, who sent in a letter from abroad:</p><blockquote> <p>I just listened to your episode on badge trading. As your conversation evolved into the international aspect of scouting, I began to reminisce about a trip I took as a scout in 2001. One of our leaders was born and raised in Denmark, so as a high adventure trip we visited his parents in Copenhagen. Although we didn't hike our way through the country (we rented a couple cars that the leaders drove), we camped out almost every night. We stayed in a couple hostels too. We met up with a Danish scout troop and spent a couple days together. It was very interesting learning about their customs and traditions, as well as teaching them about ours. I realize that a trip to Denmark is a unique experience, but I truly believe unique experiences is what scouting is all about.</p> <p>Similarly, I am currently on vacation in Costa Rica. Yesterday (Sunday) morning, I made my way into the city of Quepos and happened upon a group of Costa Rican scouts getting on a bus. Unfortunately I did not have a chance to talk to them, but it was nice to see the international aspect of scouting. It really drives your point about scouting around the world home.</p></blockquote><h4>Music</h4> <p><em>Galizur</em>, by <strong>John Zorn & The Dreamers</strong></p>

We had initially expected that the movie would be little more than an appropriation of the Scouting label...but it turns out that there's actually more to it than that. If you can look past the not-family-friendly content and the zombie-killing premise, you can see in the three Boy Scout characters in the movie a lot of the same dynamics that are present in many Scout groups.</p><h4>Music</h4><p><em>Theme Song</em> from <em>The Walking Dead</em>, composed by <strong>Bear McCreary</strong></p><p><em>We Carry On</em>, by <strong>The Phantoms</strong> featuring <strong>Amy Stroup</strong></p>

Episode 2 - What's That You're Wearing?
<h4>Why do Scouts wear uniforms? What are the essential components of a Scout uniform?</h4>----more----<p>We're discussing uniforms in this episode. If you look at the etymology of the word “uniform”, it basically means “one form”; it's an outward sign of the unity of a group, of the fact that they are all there for the same purpose, to work toward the same goal(s). This is as true for a soccer team as for a Scout group, and the intent is the same; some individuality is stripped away — and differences based on ethnicity and economic standing are diminished — in order to build up group cohesion. If individuals within the group are going to distinguish themselves, it won't be by their outward appearance, but by their achievements.</p><h4>Music</h4><em>Galizur</em>, by <strong>John Zorn & The Dreamers</strong><p></p>

We take a look at how some of the different Scouting movements around the world define it, and also refer back to Lord Baden Powell's <em>Scouting for Boys</em> (which doesn't offer as concrete a definition of what Scouting itself is, although it goes into great detail about the characteristics of a Scout).</p><h4>Music</h4><p><em>Galizur</em>, by <strong>John Zorn & The Dreamers</strong></p>
