Scouts Against Bullying

Kaleb Henningsen, a Life Scout from Troop 510 in Council Bluffs, Iowa, saw one of his friends being made fun of, and decided he’d had enough.

So he started a Facebook group called Teens Against Bullying, where teens can share their experiences and discuss ways to effectively limit bullying in their schools. After just a couple of weeks, thousands of teens have already joined in.

Join their discussion at Facebook Group: Teens Against Bullying.

If you feel like you’re being bullied, talk to a parent, Scoutmaster, teacher or any other trusted adult.

    The Scouting Around blog is your source for Scouting news. Get ideas for your troop by reading about Scouting activities across the country. Biking in Buffalo? Caving in California? Fishing in Florida? Mountain climbing in Montana? Shooting in South Carolina? It's all right here.

    Is your unit going on a great fishing trip? Or maybe you’re taking an awesome trek in the mountains or a cool dive under the sea? Whatever your adventure, Boys’ Life might want to tag along.

    We’re deciding which Super Scouting Outings to feature in future issues, and your trip could be next. But we need to hear about it as far in advance as possible.
