Walking the Line

Imagine this- You’ve asked your Scouts what they want to do. You’ve planned where you’re going, who you’re going with, when it’s going to be how to get there, what you’re going to eat, and why you’re going. You’ve checked your gear, made sure your stove is clean and have your water filter ready. Parents have been briefed on the trip, you’ve got your Camping and Outdoor Activity form signed off from your Group Commissioner and left a copy of your emergency plan with another Scouter not going on the trip.

Everyone loves tick boxes!

You are six hours into the adventure and something happens. A Scout sprains her ankle. Or it’s absolutely pouring and your Cubs are drenched, even though they have the right gear. Maybe you lose the trail while up on the ridge in the fog bank And the question you’re asking yourself is this—

When do we turn around?

To Boff or Not To Boff

Boffing

Duct tape. Electrical tape. PVC. Pipe insulation Foam.

These make for one heck of a fun night. These materials make for homemade boffing swords, which is simply great for Cub Scouts. Inspired by St. Georges Day this year, the Highlander Cub Scouts had a Boffing tournament to celebrate the defeat of the dragon.
