    Scout Leaders?

    I was curious and I see that it pops up from time to time but how many Scout Leaders or at least adults that help the leaders do we have here? I myself am a Assistant Scout Leader for the Boys Scouts and a Cub Master for the Cub Scouts. It would be cool to maybe throw out different ideas and activities that we can do with the scouts that pertain to Hammocking and Camping in general.

    Example: Last meeting that we had I helped them all make coke can stoves with mess stands. They all loved doing the project and now they all have something to cook on when we all go out backpacking in July.

    Including myself and the other other leader there are three other boys that hang.

    What do you think?

    Hi Nighthauk. There are quite a few of us scouters on-board here at HF.

    Here is another thread on the subject - http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=31196

    Not to derail your topic, but the guide to safe scouting pretty much outlaws pop-can stoves in scouts. There are some threads about that as well, but I don't have one off-hand.

    Is this link password protected or is it correct because I am told that I am not authorized to view it?

    Sorry, that thread is in the Member Area (Roundtable Off-Topic). Well-worth the $10 (I believe that is what membership costs)

    Just a heads-up, the mods may determine this thread is not directly hammock related and move it there as well. They work hard to keep the general areas very hammock focused.

    Scoutmaster of Troop 211 here in E. Helena Montana. Link doesn't work for me either. Not authorized to view. Currently have two leaders and 1 scout hanging. Looking at making some DIY hammocks with the rest of the boys.

    I understand, I was hoping to keep it hammock stuff related just a scout bend on it.

    Mods I leave it up to your discretion.

    3 of us hanging this past week at our base camp for day excursions in the Sierras. I have another 2 who have now started paying attention to how comfortable the hammocks are.

    Yeah I had to search for it. I was thoroughly disappointed when I read that. However now that the kids have seen how to make them they now have the skill. Though we can't use them on a scouting event does not mean they personally can't use them. I have already heard of a scout with parental supervision cooked dinner on his.
