IN FOCUS Summer is here—so make it snappy! The digital camera universe is expansive. How do you choose? And how should Thrifty Scouts get the most for their money? Turn to the May issue for the Gear Guy’s take on digital photography supplies. He narrows down the market and throws in some dream-item highlights, including the GoPro HD Hero (above). This feature will get your Scouts ready to document their summer adventures.


WHEELING AROUND When you suggest backpacking for a summer trip, do your Scouts give you the “been- there, done-that” look? Step it up a notch: Add mountain bikes to the mix. In the May issue, one troop hits the trail on bikes—fine-tuning their “bikepacking” skills with suggestions for other boys aiming to mimic their trip. Read up on this high-thrills Missouri adventure and learn how your Scouts, too, can carry their camping gear on wheels.


UNDER THE SEA One group of Florida Scouts searched for an off-the-beaten- path destination to earn their 50-miler award. Their choice: A remote island in the Bahamas. In June, read about how they battled the elements—including scorching heat and swarms of fruit bats—while making time for frequent snorkeling stops. What’s more, this story shares travel tips for other adventuresome Scouts.
