I am looking for ideas for my Pack to do their 12 hours per boy per year of community service. We have done the planting a garden for a school, trash pickup at a public park, singing at a nursing home. Looking for something different that the boys will like that other packs have done.

Two years ago, our pack started a once a month litter pickup at the elementary school in our neighborhood. The scouts dress in uniform the first Monday of each month and under supervision clean the parking lot and surrounding area. Great service project. We are expanding it this year to the block around the American Legion post which sponsors our unit.

Plan An Action-Pack Program
Piedmont Council

Lew Gardner, worked with several generations of Boy Scouts, observed that "boys have two muscles to sit on, and 1.000 to wiggle with!" They have a very low tolerance & attention span for dull facts; they want to turn on, to get into action, they'll make it. They are not bad…just bored. Make learning into doing. Behavior problems hardly occur when boys are busy hammering, making skits or playing a game. At the same time, they do not realize that they are also learning.

Thank You Ideas

Sunburn Award
Use yellow poster board and make a big bright sun. Present to the person who received sunburn while on a Scouting event. A pair of sunglasses could be attached to the sun.

BSA 13 Hour Clock
Make a clock face with 13 hours. Print "Official BSA" on the face of the clock. Put a message on the back of the clock like "for the person who is very busy and still finds an extra hour to get the job done.

Wet Sponge
A good award for the new den leader so the leader can soak up all the ideas and energies of the many people with whom the leader will come into contact with.
