Boy Scout founder Lord Baden-Powell once said, “The Patrol (method) is the one essential feature in which Scout training differs from that of all other organizations, and where properly applied, it is absolutely bound to bring success. It cannot help itself!” So before accepting the position of area director for Area 5 of the Central Region, Mark Griffin was tasked with developing training and a big part of that was helping leaders understand the patrol method and how to get the most from it. He shares a lot of that understanding right here on ScoutCast.

The Scoutmaster’s Minute is a brief inspirational message, usually given at the end of a meeting or at the end of an activity in which you bring the whole group back together.

We asked these questions to John Duncan, Council Commissioner with the Northeast Illinois Council, who gave us a lot of food for thought.

How do you explain the benefits of merit badges to a boy? Sure, you’re the adult, you get it, but how do we explain it so the Scout gets it?

Zach Chopp-Adams, advisor for the C2 section of the Michigan Crossroads Council, wrote one of his Wood Badge tickets on motivating Scouts to earn merit badges and shares his insight right here on ScoutCast.

Everyone knows Scouting is full of really cool activities like camping and kayaking and building robots, but like everything else on Planet Earth, it costs money. So another big part of Scouting is fundraising. It’s not too difficult when you’re a cute little Cub Scout, and you give a great big smile with those adorable chubby cheeks and start stumbling through your script. You’re just so doggone precious, people gladly buy whatever you’re selling. But what about when the Scouts get older and a little less adorable? Donovan Fisher, aka The Popcorn Scout, and his dad, Scott, with the Washington Crossing Council in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, are here to share with us Donovan’s secrets as the third highest selling Scout in 2013 with more than $23,000 in sales. Did Dad help? Let’s find out.

If you’re a seasoned Scoutmaster, assistant Scoutmaster, or Venturing Advisor, you know what we’re talking about.

It takes some experience to know how to handle these situations tactfully, so longtime Scoutmaster and current Venturing Advisor Peter Self shares the microphone with us to discuss in great detail how to get permission to handle awkward situations.
