IN SYNC Grab your paddle and follow along as Nevada Troop 211 travels down the Colorado River below the mammoth Hoover Dam. Conditions on the river change quickly, and—when the current switches into overdrive— the boys must work as a team to successfully navigate the rugged water. Your Scouts will be on the edge of their seats when reading this October feature.


SWEAT SUCCESS Do your Scouts know BMI from BMX? If they're heading to the Summit Bechtel Reserve for the 2013 National Scout Jamboree, your boys (and girls!) need to be in tip-top physical shape. Turn to the September issue for a breakdown of BMI, in addition to a series of quick strength exercises suitable for Scouts and Venturers of all ages. Plus, boyslife.org will offer up new workouts (and fitness videos) leading up to the big event.


TOOL TIME Caution: You're entering a hard-hat area! Join this Pennsylvania troop (in the September issue) as it combines service and adventure during a trip to Glacier National Park in Montana. Your Scouts will get inspired by these boys who took a less-than-traditional summer "vacation" to help reconstruct a building at the Glacier Institute that collapsed under heavy snow. The project left a lasting symbol of the Scouts' service at this world- famous park.
