Free articles for Boy Scout newsletters

We have around 80 articles available (already written) ranging from around 100 to 900 words covering a variety of Boy Scout-specific topics. These are based on our research and writing toward our book, Beginning Boy Scouts.

We provide the articles for free to troops, districts, and other scout organizations for their print newsletters.

We request that you don't post them online in HTML format, only use one at a time (unless receive prior approval), don't bundle many of the articles together to make a compilation, and you must provide an attribution sentence each time citing the source of the article. You may edit or extend the articles to meet your policies or procedures, but please clearly state that modifications were made or add your new content to an additional section making it clear they are separate.

For your information, our technical reviewers and subject matter experts included: Unit Commissioners, Scoutmasters, parents of Eagle Scouts, Unit Committee Chairs, Committee Chair for Jamboree troops, District Camping Chair, Chartering Organization Representatives, District Webmaster, Assistant Scoutmasters, District Commissioners, Assistant Council Commissioner, Eagle Scouts, Camp Staffers, Commissioner Staff, Explorer Post Advisors, District Committee members, professional Senior District Executive, Venturing Crew pioneer, Troop Advancement Chair, Webelos to Scout Transition Chair, and more.
