WEB EXCLUSIVES Find us online this summer! Scouting


takes a break from publishing in July- August, but you can still find new, exclusive content on our Web site, scoutingmagazine.org. That’s where we’ll offer gear giveaways (an Osprey backpack and more), a Where Am I? contest, and in-depth coverage of the National Annual Meeting in June, including a list of Silver Buffalo and Silver Antelope recipients (at scouting magazine.org/nam12).


CHARACTER STUDY How the BSA Ranks


The results are in! That 2010 Baylor University study we told you about in our March-April issue examined the impact Scouting has on fostering positive youth development and healthy, virtuous behaviors—also known as “prosocial behavior.”


NEW HERE On Top at the Summit


One of Scouting’s newest hires has hit the ground running on one of the BSA’s largest projects. As former deputy chief of Naval Operations for Fleet Readiness and Logistics, Dan McCarthy brings an extensive résumé to his new post as Director of the Summit Group. McCarthy, a lifelong Scouter, has overall


responsibility for the construction, delivery, and, ultimately, the operation of the Summit Bechtel Reserve. “My primary area of expertise has been in the logistics arena, and the whole Summit operation is founded on effective and efficient logistics,” McCarthy says. “This is more than a high-adventure base; it’s a high-adventure base on steroids.” Jamboree Department Manager Larry Pritchard and Operations Manager Mike


Patrick will report to McCarthy. “We have a dedicated team of experienced pro- fessionals in place at the Summit, and I look forward to complementing their skill sets as we bring the Summit to life,” McCarthy says. 

up that really excited me, I’d like to continue,” McCarthy says. “But it had to be something that would leverage my skills and make a long-term contribution. When this opportunity opened up, it was a natural fit.”


When compared to men who were Boy Scouts


(but never earned Eagle) and men who were never in Scouting, Eagle Scouts are more likely to:


 Belong to at least four formal or informal groups


Be active in a group that works to protect the environment


Have set and achieved a personal and/or spiritual goal in the past year


Be prepared by having a disaster kit in their home and a designated meeting place for the family to reunite in an emergency
