Today is the day to sign up for your 2017 National Jamboree experience.  If you have never gone to the National Jamboree, it is often noted as one of the best experiences a Scout partakes in throughout their Scouting years.

2017 Scoutmaster Bucky will be donning his Venturing uniform and will be leading the Northern Star Council's Venturing Crew Contingent to the 2017 National Jamboree at the Summit Bechtel in West Virginia in July of 2017.

The National Jamboree runs from July 19 to July 28, 2017 but there will be a few days of travel on each side of those dates as we explore parts of our Nation enroute and back from the Jamboree.

Ms Lisa Bemboom and myself will be leading this Crew and we invite all young men and young ladies interested in attending to consider joining the Northern Star Council National Jamboree Crew for this great experience. 

Don't worry if you are not a member of a Crew but want to go to the National Jamboree as a Venturing Scout, we have plenty of Northern Star Council Venturing Crews that would love to have you join their local crew.

If you are interested in attending the National Jamboree as a Venturing Scout, or just have questions about the Jamboree and think you might be interested, send an email to Scoutmaster Bucky at the following link:   

Want to register or learn more on your own, check out this link:

Don't Wait. registration is now open and while it seems far off, there are only a limited number of spaces available.  Guarantee your spot by registering today.

How to fill out a blue Card

Nothing creates more questions here at Scoutmaster Bucky than Blue Cards.  While the Internet holds a lot of useful information, there is not a whole lot of detailed information available for Blue Cards

Scoutmaster Bucky is proud to offer the first comprehensive Merit Badge Application (Blue Card) Instruction Guide - aka How to Fill Out a Blue Card.. This document is a guide for both Youth Scouts and Adult Scouters and Merit Badge Counselors alike. The guide was put together to help all parties involved in the handling of Blue Cards to understand each others responsibilities and roles in the process.

(Click here to download Scoutmaster Bucky's - How to Fill Out a Blue Card Document).

Let Scoutmaster Bucky know what you think.  Was this guide helpful? Any questions, clarifications, or corrections? Send me your questions and watch this section for updates.  (Click here to send Scoutmaster Bucky a Blue Card Instruction Guide Inquiry email).

UPDATE COMING
 

Excerpt from 1918 electricity merit badge pamphlet

 

"There is only one rule in the world, and it applies to all professions, and that is that you are expected to 'make good'.  No excuses are allowed in this school of life, and the only way to make good is to keep faith.  This the reason I like the idea of the Boy Scouts - because of their secure notion of being responsible to society.  They are responsible to the people who live around them - to help maintain the standards of order and fidelity upon which the community depends."


(signed)     Woodrow Wilson

President of the United States of America
