2013 11 Year Old Overnighter

Registration URL: http://www.utahscouts.org/event/timpanogos-district-11-yr-old-campout-2013/1371850

Invitation: 2013 Annual 11 yr old Campout is Aug 9th and 10th at Mutual Dell

Fee: $5 per scout, no charge for adults.

Opening campfire: 7:30pm for about a half hour. Stakes have options to feed their scouts prior to that and/or have some time to meet with them after the District campfire.

Assigned camp area’s will be by stake and will be announced on this site after registration closes August 4th. Stakes wishing to exercise the options to feed and/or meet with their scouts will have an area assigned to them for that as well. Please contact Dan Whitmore if you haven’t already done so.

We are seeking help from the older scout troops to man skills stations on Saturday morning in the grassy area from 8:30 to 10:30 that the 11 year old scouts can attend and pass off a requirement for advancement (Tenderfoot, 2nd Class and First Class). We have 2nd Class requirement 3C covered and we need one troop for each of the following to be taught using the EDGE method. Contact Dan Whitmore (whitmorefamilyutah@gmail.com 801 358 7172) if your troop can help:

  • 2nd Class requirement 7A (Hurry Cases)
  • 1st Class requirement 6 (ID 10 native plants)
  • 1st Class requirement 8D (Heart Attack, CPR)
  • 1st Class requirement 8B (Transport Injured)

A 5 mile hike is planned for those who want to pass this off.  It will start at the trail across from the entrance to Mutual Dell.   Whenever you are done with skill stations you can start your hike.  Each scout will need at least two 16 oz water bottles.  Plan on about 3 hours.  A map and description will be provided at the opening campfire.  Use every caution when crossing the hiway.

For those who wish to come a little early, I will start greeting troops at the entrance at 3pm on Friday the 9th. Looking forward to seeing you! Dan Whitmore

Eleven Year Old (EYO) Boy Scouts

The Eleven Year Old (EYO) Patrol provides the foundation to Boy Scouts. This important first year in a young man’s Boy Scout life is critical to his following years in the Scouting program and his Young Men’s program. Frankly, the EYO program is the foundation and vital key to a vibrant, exciting, and attractive Young Men’s program. As an Assistant Scoutmaster/EYO Leader, you will work with your troop committee and the Scoutmaster to deliver the promise of Scouting to your boys. Your boys will form a patrol and have a strong identity together. Ultimately, your primary objective is to provide a positive, consistent Scouting experience using the Patrol Method that allows the boys to build character, fitness and citizenship while making sure they reach the First Class Rank. And, remember to make it fun for you and your boys!

Below are some important support documents to help you get started. Please read the Quickstart Guide first, and then take a look at the 4-month Activity Plan. The Eagle at a Glance flyer will help you get an overview of the ranks and what merit badges are available. Get to training as soon as possible. Attend Monthly Roundtable –there is a special EYO leader breakout session. Within the first 90 days, complete your Boy Scout Leader training, and then get to North Star, or Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills. You can check our training page to know when then next classes are available.

Please don’t hesitate to ask questions. You have lots of help all around you!



Benefits of the 4-Month EYO Program:

The 4-month Activity plan is a rock-solid, duplicable, easy to follow program that is extremely flexible, greatly accommodates scouts needs, and graciously allows you as the EYO leader to plug into troop, ward, district, and council events whenever you need to. It is a well-rounded program that soundly builds Scouts of character, fitness, and citizenship and employs all the eight methods of Scouting, not just advancement. It builds great young men and great Scouts! This program repeats multiple times per year so the older scouts can have leadership opportunities to teach the younger scouts, while accommodating both new boys entering the program and older boys aging-out. Enthusiastically implemented, this program is fun, exciting, and the boys LOVE it!
