Sample 11 Year Old Scout Calendar
Out sincere thanks to Dale Ford for sending us this well thought-out
calendar. He writes: "I have attached a calendar that will schedule the requirements for getting to First Class twice per year. This should allow for scouts joining in the
middle of the year and still getting to First Class at some time in the year they will spend in the program. The older scouts who will repeat the requirements can help to teach the younger scouts. I have
used this program for many years and find it to work well."
A clarification to this outline that we would suggest is that one Saturday outing or "day camp" be scheduled each month when no overnight camp is held. This would be a
time for hikes, orienteering, practicing cooking and other outdoor skills, bonding, enjoying nature, letting off excess energy, etc. "What is Scouting without the Outing?"
