About ScoutSmarts

Welcome, future Eagle Scout! I’m so glad you’re here...

Being a BSA Scout is unlike any other extracurricular. As Scouts, we get to explore the beauty of nature, forge great troop friendships, and grow to overcome challenges. What’s more, we learn to be prepared, act as upstanders in society, and confidently lead. It’s no secret, Scouting changes lives for the better!

But, at some point or another, every scout will feel stuck and unmotivated. It’s natural, but often the worst thing they can do is quit too early. That’s why I created ScoutSmarts — To help more scouts stay involved in their troop, rank up, have a better time, and get the most out of their Scouting journey.

By the way, my name’s Cole!
I’m the guy behind ScoutSmarts.
I hope this helps you out a ton! 🙂

As an Eagle Scout, I wouldn’t trade my Scouting adventures for anything! I gained confidence, built friendships, served my community, learned skills, adsorbed values, and began developing into the person I hoped to be. I want the same for you (and many more scouts to come!), which is why I started this blog.

Here at ScoutSmarts.com, you’ll find a ton of info-packed articles, videos, and E-guides made to help you along the toughest points of your Scouting journey. Whether you’re trying to earn merit badges, improve your patrol leadership, or kick off your Eagle project, I’ve got you covered! 😀

In fact, to help you quickly get started, here are a few links to some of my best and most helpful articles:

Happy reading! Now, on a final note, I truly believe that Scouting is a powerful force for good in our nation. Whatever your role is, thank you for your involvement in Scouting, and for spreading kindness and acceptance toward others. Everything we do matters, so let’s all strive to do our best every day!

Develop peace and goodwill within our borders by training our youth of both sexes to its practice as their habit of life. So that the jealousies of town against town, class against class and sect against sect no longer exist. And then extend this good feeling beyond our frontiers towards our neighbours.

-Lord Robert Baden-Powell, Scouting’s Founder

Now, lace up your boots, tighten your neckerchief, and get reading, because it’s time to take charge of your journey to Eagle! 😉

Yours in Scouting,
Cole
