You know, it may sound like such a simple idea but I've had pretty good
success simply using the parts of the scout law with the explanation of
each point in the scout handbook, you know "FRIENDLY....A scout is a friend
to all and a brother to every other scout. He seeks to understand
others.....etc." I laminated each one on a piece of 1/8" luan, drilled two
holes at the sides of the luan placque and attached them to trees around
the campsite (some pretty far into the woods where the boys kind of
"stumble" on to them. It's amazing how many boys have never really taken
time to read these explanations. I also do one of the scout oath and tie
it to a tree in the center of camp and right below it.... I tie a small
mirror. It's like a magnet and the boys get a good dose of looking
themselves in the eye while being presented with the oath.
BLUE SKIES!, Any day above ground is a good day!
