The first of two volumes of the long-awaitedÂ Troop Leader Guidebook is finally available through the BSA Supply Division’s ScoutStuff.org website and at many Scout Shops in local councils.
TheÂ Guidebook,Â priced at $12.99, replaces theÂ Scoutmaster Handbook and is a wide-ranging manual that explains Boy Scouting to an audience that includes not only the Scoutmaster but committee members and parents as well. It is written without jargon and assumes that the reader has little or no familiarity with the Boy Scout program.
There’s a great article today on Scouting Magazine’s blog that describes theÂ Guidebook in detail. The book is likely to be in great demand initially, so before heading to your Scout Shop, call ahead to make sure they have copies.This post first appeared on Bobwhite Blather.
