Download these planning resources for your next Scouting year

This year has been hectic, to say the least — disrupted schedules, cancelled campouts and constant adjustments have become the norm. Any resource to help you keep track of changes and plan accordingly would be welcomed.

Say no more. Boys’ Life magazine offers free downloadable calendars, notebooks and charts to help you Be Prepared and continue Scouting efficiently. Boys’ Life, the premiere magazine for kids and teens, has provided these resources to Scouters for years.

Many of these resources have been integrated into Scoutbook, the BSA’s advancement tracking app. The app offers a suite of easy-to-use, web-based tools that are helpful to both Scouts and leaders.

Through Scoutbook

  • Scoutbook enables units to update advancement records, manage activities, download purchasing reports, communicate with the unit, and much more.
  • Parents and Scouts can track their progress through the Scouting App (available for download via the Apple App Store and Google Play Store). Through the app, parents can review and track requirement completion, add service hours, keep hiking and camping logs, prepare their Eagle Scout application and more.
  • If you are new to Scoutbook, tutorials and instruction guides can be found here.
