The principles and concepts of outdoor ethics are not just for the campsite. They should apply to school grounds, parking lots, even your own backyard. So, how do you explain this to your group of 7- to- 10-year-old boys? Hosts Amy and Aaron share their dens’ experiences as they chat with Dennis Kampa, the National Camping School Task Force Chair and author of the BALOO Training as he shares his words of outdoor wisdom.
It’s one thing to figure out what to do when your own child is having a temper tantrum and being disruptive, but what if one of the other Cub Scouts is having that tantrum? We know you have this question because real-life Cub Scout Leaders and CubCast hosts Amy and Aaron have come across this situation. So, we reached out all the way to Sweden to chat with Tina Wiman, the author of the book Sulky, Rowdy, Rude?: Why Kids Really Act Out and What to Do About It. Such an interesting discussion … you should join us!
It’s a topic so big it cannot be contained in one podcast! Ellie Morrison, assistant Scoutmaster with Troop 308 in Waco, Texas, joins CubCast’s Amy Hutcherson and ScoutCast’s Bryan Wendell in a special CubCast/ScoutCast crossover episode to share with us everything you need to know about the New Member Coordinator (meaning a coordinator for new members, even though, yes, it is a new position … well, you get it).
One good reason should be enough to get your Cub Scouts to day camp, but Jennifer Mooney, the Camping Director for the Cascade-Pacific Council in Portland, Oregon, shares with us 10, that’s right, 10 reasons why day camp strengthens the Cub Scouting experience.
