Free First Aid Training
Looking for something worthwhile for scouts to do over their Christmas break to fill some of that down time?
Through December 31, the Red Cross is offering FREE online first aid and CPR training.
It doesn't result in any certification, but it's a great way for your troop to learn, review, or brush up on their first aid knowledge.
See Red Cross page for info and free registration.

Can We Talk?
Well, maybe not 'talk', but at least write or type!
There are over 700 Scouting groups looking for Pen Pals on the Pen Pals page. There are over 700 international Scouts, Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, and Boy Scouts units looking for new friends to exchange greetings.
Many scout rank and merit badge requirements ask the scout to interact with other people in their community or around the world. Here's a great way to connect with other scouting groups out there.
Even if you aren't really looking for a Pen Pal, other activities can be more fun when done with scouts far away. For example, the new Code of the Wolf requirement #4 to send a coded message would be way cool if sent to a fellow scout in another state or country!
Or, the Building a Better World Arrow of Light requirement #10c to find a brother scout unit in another country can be done here.
Sign up your unit, find some Pen Pals, and start talking! (or writing)
