ESSENTIALS OF SCOUTING What does it take to be a prepared Scout? Boys' Life's May issue highlights essential knowledge every Scout needs to successfully (and safely) explore the outdoors. Covering fitness, knot-tying, first aid and much more, this issue is packed with helpful advice your Scouts and Venturers will keep coming back to for years to come.


OUR STORY, YOUR ENDING In October 2013, BL challenged readers to write their own ending to a suspenseful tale called "Dragon Mountain." You don't want to miss reading the ending in the June issue that wowed BL editors and took first place in the Finish-the-Story Contest. Second- and third-place winners' entries can be found at bookzone.boyslife.org.


CAPTURE SUMMER Are your Scouts or Venturers constantly reaching for their camera phones to snap a photo during weekend outings? In the June issue, they can brush up on their "phoneography" expertise with easy-to-employ tips for capturing great images. Once armed with these strategies, find out how members of your pack, troop or crew can put these new skills to the test and enter BL's Summer Fun Photo Contest.
