  1. I sure wish I had found these before, now I’m a star scout and can’t use them. Wish they had them for the other ranks, but then again, they are mostly just merit badges.

  2. Homeschooler Mom these videos are awesome. Good job! My Son is just a board of review away from 1st class.We just discovered them 2 weeks ago. I like him reviewing what he has done to make sure he has really learned everything required. Thank you Boys you have done a good job teaching on these videos.

  3. Shouldn’t it be said “One meal you cook and he cleans, and the next he cooks and you clean”? I’m speaking of requirement 3 in Tenderfoot, which refers to the buddy system.

  4. For First Class Requirement 7b, on the Diagonal Lashing the Frapping Turns are discussed, but they are not shown on the video (It looks to me as thought they have been skipped)

  5. In First Class Requirement 4d, the video nor the book doesn’t talk about what to use in your pack to keep the perishable food cold until it is cooked. How about some practical advice (like using dried ice?)?

  6. I agree with “knotmaster140”. The podcasts are not working (at least for an Apple iPod (Classic)).

  7. “A Former Scout” can rejoin the BSA as an adult.

  8. I’m 2nd class i can’t wait to be first

  9. If I am correct, first you get your Tenderfoot, then your 2nd class, then your 1st class.

  10. uh… what comes first 1st class or tinderfoot? šŸ˜¦

  13. These video’s are great but I have found an error. Has anybody noticed that 2nd Class requirement 8a and 8b are the same video and 8b is not correct?

    Check with your scoutmaster. He should have received these videos on a DVD from BSA National earlier this summer. This is a great tool to put in the hands of the older scouts to add pizzazz to their teaching sessions.

    In your American flag video, you forgot to mention that it shouldNEVER touch the FLOOR!!!!!! I’m a tenderfoot (well, all but board of review), and I know it! Great videos, though.

    Tonight is my first meeting so I want to learn as much as I can, so I get my first rank as fast as possible.

  34. It’s a great way to actually see what I need to do, to bad they don’t have something like this for merit badges.

    I can’t veiw the video and I can not get onto the apple we site because of school blocks. It plays but all I hear is the audio and I can’t see the video.

    I think this really helps younger scouts see what they need to do!

    This is really excellent!!!!!!

    i like it!!!!!!

  43. Helps when reviewing for Board Of Review.

  44. great information and helpful guide. The bicycle racers in the end of Tenderfoot requirement 10b aren’t wearing helmets, which isn’t very safe, and I feel is somewhat our of place for Boy Scouts were we are very safety oriented.

  45. It shows me what I will need to do soon. Helpful

  46. salut

  47. It shows me what I will need to do soon. Helpful

  48. Helps get a feel for it

    Makes me sad that I never continued Boy Scouts, sad because I will be eighteen in a month. Can’t really rejoin at that age now can I?
