While we innovate to bring the benefit of Scouting to life through technology, through new merit badges or even new programs, like STEM Scouts, outdoor activities are still one of my favorite aspects of Scouting. I hope all Scouts get to experience the personal growth that comes with spending time experiencing adventures – big and small – in the outdoors.
The inaugural Capstone course in Supervision and Management brings real challenges to our students. The requirements include a case study, individual presentations, discussion questions, a business simulation and company presentation among other things such as Twitter updates, mentors, and guest speakers. Students have to be prepared to get “lost, and “survive” Capstone Island and our “shark tank”. It is a challenge with the reward of being the first class in the BAS in Supervision and Management program.
