Hiking Activities: Sometimes when we are out hiking with Scouts it seems like they are so focused on getting from here to there that they forget to look around and see the sights.  If you are out with a goal oriented group and you want them to take some time to explore, consider adding one or more additional hiking activities. You’ll find some suggestions below

Do you have a Pack hike planned for this spring? If not, now is the time. Planning a hike is not difficult. First, select a location. Try someplace different that you haven’t been for a couple of years. Ask at Roundtable if you aren’t familiar with many trails in your area. Or do an urban hike. If you live in a neighborhood with light traffic, a hike to a local ice cream shop and back will be a hit with your Cub Scouts. Or hike in a historic district.

Since I am focusing on an aquatics theme this month, I thought I’d post about water rescue methods. These are methods used to rescue someone who is in trouble in the water. You will see these methods throughout the BSA programs from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts to Venturing.

Cub Scout Leave No Trace Award: During the winter, most Cub Scout units do less camping. But that doesn’t mean  you can’t still get outdoors. While you are doing your outdoor activities, your Cub Scouts can earn the Cub Scout Leave No Trace award. This is not a difficult award for the Cub Scouts to earn. They are not to young to be aware of LNT principles and as Scouts they should already be doing most of these things when they go hiking or camping.
