Cub Scout leaders keep bringing up advancement challenges in the new Adventure Program, mainly that it is too rigid. Well, national has been listening! Read more about it in Bryan on Scouting then go look at all the changes, http://www.scouting.org/filestore/cubscouts/pdf/CubScout_Advancement_Modifications.pdf
HELP SCOUTS MORE EFFECTIVELY
Every unit leader, assistant, and parent is a trainer. Effective trainers are always looking for ways to improve their communication and teaching skills. The Trainer Development Conference is all about providing new ways to strengthen your presentation skills and help you design Scouting environments that maximize the benefit for the youth.
Saturday, January 21st - 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM - Camp Parsons
Scouting teaches “leave a trace”.
I snicker at the media and others who have less than kind words for The Boy Scouts. Then, in various shows have a character say, “well, we are not Boy Scouts here” or “this is not the Boy Scouts”! Thus affirming, in a backhanded way, the positive values BSA teaches the youth in the program. What is needed to make this world a better place is for everyone to live by the oath, law, slogan, and motto of scouting.
When we teach a boy to "Do a Good Turn Daily" we have taught the boy to “LEAVE A TRACE” with each Good Turn they do.
Scout Leaders, you have a wonderful opportunity to make a difference in the world.
Keep it up!

“There are strange things done in the midnight sun, by the men who moil for gold, the Arctic trails have their secret tales that would make your blood run cold”……these words were penned by the fabled poet and writer, Robert Service, as he watched the great Klondike Gold rush going on around him. It was an amazing time in our country with men and women pushing themselves to unbelievable limits in the hopes of striking it rich!
And annually around the country, the BSA puts on its own version of the Klondike Challenge to put its members to the test! Webelos, Boy Scouts, Venturers – time to start dusting off your sled or build a new one because Klondike will soon be upon us. Ensign Ranch will once again host our great Klondike.

As of December 1st, all current MBC’s are on the list and ready to go.
Please remember this list is intended for the private use of Troops, Units, and MBC’s and should not to be sent to parents or scouts. Scouts are required to contact their Unit to request a MBC. This process is used as a check and balance for all scouts and allows Units the chance to check in with scouts and have an open communication about a scout’s advancement.
Information on the MBC list is updated on a weekly basis. Saving a copy to your computer may mean you have outdated information. Please feel free to visit the online list at any time.
We also have a new email address SammTrailsMBClist@outlook.com.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please contact

The time you spent this past summer at Cub Day Camp, hiking trails, herding Scouts to the dining hall, and singing campfire songs helped build your Scouts’ sense of adventure, teamwork, and ability to overcome challenges.
Chances are you helped those Scouts create a handful of memories they will keep for the rest of their lives. That same volunteer time, which has already had a profound effect on the youth around you, could have a huge impact financially for Scouting.
Please take the time today to log in your BSA Volunteer Hours.
This process provides essential funding for the same camps and activities your Scouts enjoyed this summer here in Chief Seattle Council. And, for every 50 hours you volunteer, your pack or troop will receive 100 Scout Bucks that can be used for council and district activities.
