Are You Tougher Than A Boy Scout?

There’s a new TV show about Scouting coming soon, and it looks terrific.

Are You Tougher Than A Boy Scout? will make its debut on the National Geographic Channel on March 4 at 7 p.m. Central time. There will be six episodes, concluding with the series finale on April 8.

The reality show pits a Boy Scout against an average, ordinary adult who isn’t involved in Scouting. Each week, the rivals will be tested on a series of outdoors-related challenges.

The company behind the show, Original Productions, has produced many successful shows before, including Deadliest Catch, Ice Road Truckers, CoalAx Men1,000 Ways to DieStorage Wars,and Pitchmen.

And, in case you didn’t know, there’s another TV about Boy Scouts.

    We love the series. Keegan and Rio are great! They are perfect role models for our recently crossed over Boy Scout. Even our 13 year old daughter enjoys the show. We cannot wait for the next season! Thank you for making a positive reality series on the values of the Scouts.

    I can’t wait to see this! A bunch of people at my school are saying a bunch of really mean things about scouting. Maybe a couple of them will see this though and change their minds.

    My boys both made Eagle and they said they are always surprised when their friends don’t know basic things, like how to make a fire correctly, sharpen a knife the right way, tie a knot that stays tied or how to make a slip knot.
