Alice, Golden Empire Council - originally set up after 9/ll as a way for kids to share friendship with kids in crisis, with all kinds of crafts, activity ideas, including a section for scouting 

Click on “scout friends” for free printables that let you personalize, add badges to make your own den, either tigers or cubs. Great for a craft project or decorations for the pack meeting!  Other countries, scout programs as well!  See a sample above

Using their instructions and printouts, you can make flat “paper-doll” type scouts, or even 3-D ones with real clothes! – created to help kids learn how to find friends; includes great book listings by age range, even parents and links to animal lovers, games, activities and printouts - printables, games, ideas for kids and parents, flip books and other activities to do with a friend; environmental ideas to share  - great ideas on how to teach good manners, good sportsmanship, how to make introductions, gift giving, delivering compliments and criticism, including a quiz about table manners and “living” manners

click on “scouting” under People and Lifestyles for links to scouting all over the world, from New Jersey to Scotland – either just to see how scouting works in other areas, or to set up a pen pal exchange on one-time exchange – pen pals of the world, info. about kids in other cultures, go to “Links” for some good websites

San Juan Capistrano This mission has a program for Scouts posted on their website.  If you know of something similar by you, send me the link, please.
