Spring is here and hopefully you are all getting outdoors with your troops. Preparations should be well underway for summer camp as well.
The BSA National Outdoor Challenge (required to earn the Scoutmaster's Key Award), involves outdoor activities on an annual basis, including conducting 10 outdoor trips or activities (think campouts and hikes), attending long-term resident camp (think Bear Lake Aquatics Base, Steiner, or Hinckley Scout Ranch), conducting an outing with a Webelos den, earning at least one outdoors merit badge per Scout, and conducting a Leave No Trace Program. Please consider tackling the National Outdoor Challenge this year. It's never too late to get outdoors more!
This month at Roundtable we'll cover Mechanics (and how to build mousetrap catapults), Hiking, and requirements for the Scoutmaster's Key Award and BSA National Outdoor Challenge. Hope to see you there!
