UNCHARTED TERRITORY Are your Scouts new to backpacking? That was the case for Troop 693 from Utah—and they didn't let that stop them from aiming big. This November feature tells their tale: After months of training, they took to the Uinta Mountains backcountry in Utah and discovered that, even with preparation, unexpected weather can arise without warning. Despite the tiring journey, the Scouts won't forget this trip.


BIKE-A-THON Get your Scouts ready for mountain biking at the Summit during the 2013 National Scout Jamboree with this exciting December article featuring a camporee focused specifically on the gritty sport. Youth must combine skill with creativity to succeed during challenging mountain-bike courses—they even learned on-the-fly repairs to help keep their bikes in motion.


SOARING ANGELS Boys' Life Senior Writer Aaron Derr takes the plunge in this December story. His goal? Reveal what it's like to fly in a Blue Angel F/A-18 Hornet. His sacrifice yields a feature that will have your Scouts laughing and picking up new details about the highly skilled pilots who fly these planes. We're just glad Aaron came back in one piece.
