Example Blog Posts

 

From Bennett 2010 BSA National Jamboree 

  • Tell about Experiences: “…Between kayaking, rock climbing, shooting and mountain boarding, many Scouts had no idea where to begin. The many acres of forests and open fields left them standing in awe, quickly trying to decide what to do. My buddy and I decided to shoot air rifles first. After waiting in line, we finally got to the front and stepped up to take our shots. Afterward, we decided to participate in the disability awareness course, as well as archery…”
  • Tell about the Shows: “…On Saturday night, we had an arena show, which attracted more than 70,000 Scouts and guests. During the show, President Barack Obama sent the camp a video message congratulating us on what we have achieved through Scouting…”

 

From Jake about his trip to Philmont Scout Ranch

  • Dive into the descriptive details and share how you feel: “…we ended this long day with the opening campfire. This was truly the start of our experience here. It was disappointing that it had to be moved to the Welcome Center, with no actual fire, but it still built anticipation for the next day.

This was very special to me as it was the first time that I was recognized as the Crew Leader, and that I was proud to have my role. We went to bed around 9 PM turning in our cots, excited to hit the trail.”
  • Talk about your fellow scouts: “…the crew I was assigned to, will be going on Trek 22. Some highlights include hiking over the Tooth of Time, and hiking over Mt. Baldy (tallest mountain on Philmont property). Perhaps the most exciting part for me is that I was elected crew leader. The other crew will be following Trek 16, which includes hiking over Mt. Phillips (second tallest peak on Philmont property) and hiking back into base camp over the Tooth of Time…”
