HOT OFF THE PRESS - BSA Issues Volume #2 Program Features - Program Planning Guide

24-Nov-2015 2:16 PM | Michael Brand (Administrator)

BSA Introduces the New Program Features Volume 2, a guide to Program Planning.  This publication provides a launching point for you and youth members to plan exciting programs that will keep members coming back, facilitate advancement and personal growth, and help you achieve Scouting’s mission. 

The Goal of Program Features for Troops, Teams, and Crew is to make that planning a little easier for all.  Each program feature in the publication provides a month’s worth of program ideas for Boy Scout Troops, Varsity Scout Teams and Venturing Crews. 

Content includes:

  • General information about the topic
  • Related Advancement Requirements and Awards
  • Games related to the topic (or that are just for fun)
  • Ideas for using the EDGE method (Explain, Demonstrate, Guide, Enable) to teach topics
  • Four weeks’ worth of meeting plans
  • Outlines of three main events (outings) that build in a length and intensity
  • Print and online resources related to the topic, including a list of related program features.

As an example, Volume #2 Includes these 2 modules :

Module #21 -Fishing - Catch Me If You Can

Module #22 - Wildlife Management - Balancing the Needs of Wildlife and People

We highly encourage our BSA Certified Angling Instructors to review the Modules contained within this publication #33111 which can be obtained at your local Scout Shop for $14.99. 

Please build awareness of these Planning Guides, the BSA Complete Angler Award, and of upcoming BSA Training opportunities such as the BSA Certified Angling Instructor in your Area.
