Spring is here—so get outside!
To help make sure you’re ready for the adventures on your Scouting schedule, we’ve put together the Gear Up and Get Out Giveaway, featuring the Avila Hydrapak water reservoir ($60) and Road ID’s Wrist ID Elite personal identification armband ($30).
Three randomly selected winners will take home a prize package including both of the items above. With these new additions to your gear supply, you’ll be ready for mountain biking, hiking, trail running, and more.
And new this month, we’re asking entrants to tell us: Where are you exploring this spring?
Submit your entry along with your favorite getaway location and you could be randomly selected as one of three winners after the contest ends May 31.
We received more than 7,000 entries in the Be Prepared Giveaway. The below names were randomly selected as our six winners:
- Adrienne Rubin, a committee member in Priceton, N.J.
- Rick McKinstry, a Cubmaster in San Antonio, Texas
- Terrel Schimpf, a pack trainer in Monett, Mo.
- Dan Buchman, a Scoutmaster in Spring Hill, Kan.
- Charles Raymo, an assistant Scoutmaster in Hickory, N.C.
- Frank Ibero, a crew adviser in La Vista, Neb.
With summertime Scouting excursions on the horizon, it’s time to make sure each Scout or Venturer has the supplies he or she needs in case of an emergency in the outdoors.
If your troop or crew is getting ready for the jamboree in July, you’ll recall that each Scout (and adult) should carry a personal first-aid kit. And, given the rugged setting, it can’t hurt to have emergency survival supplies. After all, Scouts should be prepared for anything, right?
Try your luck at winning emergency equipment in April’s Be Prepared Giveaway. Enter daily for a chance to win one of three “Ultralight/Ultratight .9″ first-aid bundles by Adventure Medical Kits ($40) or one of three SOL “Origin” multitools featuring top-rated outdoor survival gear.
The contest ends April 30, at which time six winners will be randomly selected and randomly assigned to one of the six prizes.

Remember when Bryan interviewed Super Bowl slackliner (and Eagle Scout) Andy Lewis? Then you may also recall that the BSA decided to approve slacklining as a Scouting activity—with some limitations.
If you haven’t tried the tightrope-walking sport for yourself, now’s your chance. This month, we’re giving away three Gibbon Classic Slackline kits to Scouting magazine readers in the WALK THE LINE GIVEAWAY.
Starting today, you can enter daily for a chance to be one of three randomly selected winners when the contest ends Nov. 30. Each winner will take home a Gibbon Classic Slackline kit, which includes one webbing that’s two-inches wide and 49-feet long plus one ratchet system (a $74 value).

We received 12,253 entries (wow!) in the STAKE YOUR CLAIM GIVEAWAY, which ended Oct. 31 at midnight.
The winners are …
First place: Brad Borden of Great Salt Lake Council
Second place: Bryce Rusco of Quapaw Area Council
Third place: Peter Stair of San Francisco Bay Area Council
Fourth place: William Rodie of Longhorn Council
Your tent serves as a home away from home. It withstands bad weather, late-night setups, curious insects … the list goes on.
But plenty of Scouters still use the same tent from their days as a young Scout. It’s time to upgrade—with help from Scouting magazine. And, as of Oct. 15, we’re adding another tent to the list of prizes, which means we’ll be selecting four (instead of three) winners.
In October, four winners will take home a brand new camping shelter in the STAKE YOUR CLAIM GIVEAWAY, featuring four of our favorite tents: the L.L.Bean Microlight FS; the Kelty Salida 2; the Easton Hat-Trick 2P; and the Big Agnes Burn Ridge Outfitter 2.
One winner will get to stake his claim by choosing the winning prize. The second runner up will choose from the remaining three tents, and the third runner up will choose from the remaining two tents; and the fourth runner up will take home the final option. Read more about the tents in the STAKE YOUR CLAIM GIVEAWAY.
You can enter to win daily, starting today! And use the “Tell-A-Friend” entries to share the giveaway with friends and earn extra entries. Contest ends Nov. 1.
In September’s GOING UP! GIVEAWAY, 4,078 entries were received and we randomly selected one entry as our winner.
This entry belongs to Mark DeBonville, a committee member of Troop 188 in the Western Colorado Council. He’s won a pair of EVOLV climbing shoes, a Black Diamond Vector helmet, a Petzl starter kit, and Julbo sport glasses. Congrats, Mark!
