All participants in official Scouting activities should become familiar with the Guide to Safe Scouting and be aware of state or local government regulations that supersede Boy Scouts of America policies and guidelines. The Guide to Safe Scouting provides an overview of Scouting policies and procedures rather than comprehensive, standalone documentation. For some items, the policy statements are complete. Unit leaders are expected to review the additional reference material cited prior to conducting such activities.
In situations not specifically covered in this guide, activity planners should evaluate the risk or potential risk of harm, and respond with action plans based on common sense, community standards, the Boy Scout motto, and safety policies and practices commonly prescribed for the activity by experienced providers and practitioners.
The purpose of BSA Square Knots is to quickly identify the square knot patches that appear on Boy Scouts of America uniforms, especially while mobile. The requirements for each knot can be found online.
This application is not endorsed by the Boy Scouts of America.
The application now includes rank advancement requirements, Totem Chip, Fireman Chit, Cyber Chip, and some award requirements.
You can use this application both online or offline.
There are roughly 400 skits in this application. To give you an idea how many skits that really is, if you never used another source and had a campfire with 5 skits in it at every campout on every month of every year, it would take you more than 6 and a half years to exhaust the references in this application!
I have divided this application into six sections. Five of them are alphabetical and the last one is shorts, walk-ons, and run-ons.
In future versions I intend to have a search by keyword (such as "funny" or "gross" or "Fast Paced" and search by title such as "Waiter Waiter" or ""Ugliest Man"option.
Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts LOVE playing Games! As a scout leader they will be looking to you to show them how it is done, so take a deep breath and get ready to let your hair down...
There are roughly 600 games in this application. That's a bunch of games folks! If you played one game at each scout meeting every week, it would take you about 6 years to get through all of them. Put another way, at the current price on the market, you get roughly three games for a penny...not bad in this economy.
There are 5 sections in this application: Cub scout Games, Boy scout Games, Games for All Scouts, Games for Boys (by G.S. Ripley), and Scouting Games (by Lord Robert S.S. Baden-Powell). Those five sections have been further divided into a total 49 Sections more specific to the type of game; like Outdoor Games, Strategy Games, Knot Tying Games and so on.)
In future versions I intend to have a search by keyword (such as "Outdoor" or "Cub Scout"" and search by title such as "Capture the Flag" or ""Kim's Game"option.
A Few Tips about Games:
Games Are --
Lessons without teachers
Most of all games are fun
Through Games, A Scout
Learns new skills
Develops new interests
Learns to follow the rules
Learns fair play
Learns to wait his or her turn
Is taught respect for the rights of others
Scouts like games in which there is a sizable element of luck. They do not require prizes, nor do they seem to worry if the game is not finished. They like games which restart almost automatically, so that everyone is given a new chance. Scouts like games whereby they gain the reassurance that comes with repetition.
Remember, the success of a game period depends greatly upon leadership. A leader can challenge and persuade the shy Scout and channel the energy of the "showoff", making meetings fun for all.
Choosing A Game:
Know and understand the game.
Be prepared to teach the game.
Take into consideration: Physical arrangements
Abilities of the participants
Suggestions For Conducting Games:
Know the game well and the area needed before teaching it. Have all the necessary equipment on hand.
Remove all possible hazards from the game area.
Have the full attention of the group before trying to explain the rules of the game.
To introduce the game, name it, demonstrate it, ask for questions, then start it.
Always insist on fair play.
If a game is going badly, stop it, explain it again, then try the game once more.
Play, but don't overplay a game. A successful game will be more in demand if it is stopped while it is still being enjoyed.
Be alert to overexertion.
A Shameless Plug:
Being a Scout leader is very rewarding, but it is also a tremendous amount of WORK!

The Boy Scouts of America's NOVA Awards program incorporates learning with cool activities and exposure to science, technology, engineering and mathematics for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Venturers. The hope is that the requirements and activities for earning these awards stimulates interest in STEM-related fields and shows how science, technology, engineering and mathematics apply to everyday living and the world around them. Counselors and mentors help bring this engaging, contemporary, and fun program to life for youth members.
The Nova Awards
There are four Nova awards for Cub Scouts, Webelos Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Venturers. Each award covers one component of STEM—science, technology, engineering, or mathematics.
Cub Scout Nova awards: Science Everywhere, Tech Talk, Swing!, and 1-2-3 Go!
Boy Scout Nova awards: Shoot!, Start Your Engines, Whoosh!, and Designed to Crunch
Venturer Scout Nova awards: Launch!, Power Up, Hang On!, and Numbers Don't Lie
For their first Nova award, Scouts earn the distinctive Nova award patch. After that, a Scout can earn three more Nova awards, each one recognized with a separate pi (π) pin-on device that attaches to the patch. The patch and the three devices represent each of the four STEM topics—science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
The Supernova Awards
The Supernova awards have more rigorous requirements than the Nova awards. The requirements and activities were designed to motivate youth and recognize more in-depth, advanced achievement in STEM-related activities.
For Wolf and Bear Cub Scouts:
Dr. Louis Alvarez Supernova Award
For Webelos Scouts:
Dr. Charles H. Townes Supernova Award
For Boy Scouts:
Dr. Bernard Harris Supernova Bronze Award
Thomas Edison Supernova Silver Award
Dr. Sally Ride Supernova Bronze Award
Wright Brothers Supernova Silver Award
Dr. Albert Einstein Supernova Gold Award
For earning the Supernova award, Scouts receive a medal and certificate.
All requirements may be found in the Nova awards guidebooks, available through local Scout shops—one for Cub Scouts, one for Boy Scouts, and one for Venturers. The requirements can be completed with a parent or an adult leader as the counselor (for the Nova awards) or mentor (for the Supernova awards). Each guidebook includes a section for the counselor and mentor.

A MONKEY TRICK
"I think—" began a tall, slenderly-built lad of sixteen, speaking in a somewhat indolent way; then suddenly he paused to look down through the trees to where the river gleamed below.
"What's on your mind now, Rand?" his companion queried, a boy of about the same age, nearly as tall, but more stoutly built, and as light in complexion as the other was dark. The two were standing at the top of the road that wound down the side of the mountain from the town of Creston, which was perched, like the nest of some great bird, in a hollow of the Palisades.
"I think—" repeated the first speaker, pausing again.
"That's right, Randolph," approved his companion briskly, "always think twice before you speak once."
"I always do, Donald Graeme," retorted Rand; "but what I was really going to say when you interrupted me with your irrelevant remark, was—"
"Hurrah!" broke in Donald, waving his cap in answer to the hail of another boy who was just then seen hurrying down the road toward them. "Here comes Pepper in a rush, as usual."
It was just after dawn of a June morning that the boys were assembling. It was still dark and gloomy, for it had rained during the night and the storm had not yet passed, but the boys having planned a fishing trip for this morning were not to be deterred by the fear of a wet jacket. more......
Quickly look up the Scout Oath or Promise, Scout Law, Scout Motto, Scout Slogan, or Outdoor Code.
Easily track a scout’s progress along their trail to Eagle. All ranks; Scout, Tenderfoot, Second Class, First Class, Star, Life, Eagle are available.
See which merit badges are available. Soon you'll be able to track progress towards merit badge completion as well.

I know there are a bunch of these in the market, but just FYI, not everyone has an LED for a camera (like me, I know get a better phone). This application simply uses the screen on the phone to make a lantern (flash light).
>> Tap (On/Off): Tap the screen to show the primary color, tap again to show the secondary color. Simple easy ... no power buttons, color wheels, images that look like what they are not. Simple, it's a screen turn it the color I want.
Use the Start On, option to always have the Primary color show first.
Use the Always On, option to keep the Primary color on all the time, meaning tapping will not change to the secondary color.
>> Strobe: Changes between the Primary Color and the Secondary Color at a predefined interval.
Use the Strobe Rate option to set how fast the strobe works.
>> Mores Code: this is for the Boy Scouts and other cool people who like cool features. Touch the screen and the Primary color appears. Lift your finger and the Secondary Color appears. Touch the screen again the Primary color appears. As long as you touch the screen the Primay color stays on ... Morse Code.
You can send messages, or just practice your Morse Code techniques.
