Scouting Blogs for your Reading Pleasure


Kevin V. Hunt

Greetings!  I hope that you have had a chance to check out some of my “Scouting Blogs for your Reading Pleasure”.  Recently I have had the opportunity to write some Scouting blog articles which have been published on The Voice of Scouting blogsite that gets published to many Scouting councils in the Western United States.

Many of the articles have excerpts from my Scouting Trails books, “Gnubie to Eagle Scout” and “Keys to Successful Scouting”.  No matter what your Scouting position, or whether you are an adult or youth leader, you might enjoy these or even find them helpful.  And “Gnubie to Eagle Scout” is particularly applicable for youth in Scouting.  “Gnubie” tells specifically about my own Scouting adventures as a young Scout in the old Theodore Roosevelt Council (now known as the Grand Canyon Council, Boy Scouts of America) in Arizona.  And of course, the “10 Keys to Successful Scouting” applies everywhere – youth and adult in the Scouting program.

Much of the material presented derives from my 150 or so volumes of my personal journals that I have kept over my lifetime in Scouting.  So, you kind of get to experience Scouting first hand – as it happened – the lessons and  the fun, adventure and romance of Scouting.  I invite you to check these out and share them with your Scouting friends everywhere.  And I would invite you to “like” them or comment on them.  I’d love to hear back from you!

Here are some articles you can choose from:


10 Keys to Successful Scouting

What I Learned and Relearned at my Troop Reunion

Camporees and Cooking

The CD Boss Hogs and the Patrol Method

Scouting Service – It’s Worth our All

How to be a Scout Super Mom – Part 1

How to be a Scout Super Mom – Part 2

What Every Scout Wants His Dad to Know

Well, now you have something to do on rainy afternoons when you need some excitement in your life.  But, I hope that you won’t just wait until then.  Check out the articles and begin to put them to use in your own Scouting operation.  Who knows what you might accomplish!

Best wishes along your Scouting Trails …  Kevin
