Got a Cool Trip Coming Up? Let Us Know About It!

One of the most common questions we get asked here at Boys’ Life is, “How do you find out about all of the cool Scout activities that you feature in the magazine?”

The answer? We find out about them by hearing from you!

If you know of any cool, exciting, fun Scout outings or service projects coming up, tell us about it. In general, we need at least two weeks of advanced notice to cover any event.

We can’t possibly cover every single great Scout activity across the country, but if you take a few minutes to tell us about your upcoming activity … you never know! You may just end up in a future issue of Boys’ Life magazine.

    Our Sea scout trip was to sail around San Diego bay and then watch fireworks from the big bay boom. Much better than last year considering that they all went off in 15 seconds last year. Really cool trip to go on.

    My family and I are going to raft down the Grand Canyon, then hike up it. I’m really looking forward to it.

    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.
