Specially marked Minions boxes, are on shelves for a limited time only. Look for more special offers inside boxes of General Mills cereals throughout the year!

To say, that my boys were very excited to have a Minions filled day, is an understatement! We started our morning with yellow bowls, filled with Cinnamon Toast Crunch! Minions are also taking over, Fruit Gushers, with Minions Punch, and specially marked Minions boxes! With our Fruit Gushers snacks, movie tickets, and Minions buddies, we were headed to our local movie theater.

Wood Badge C3-312-14-2 Pre-course Meeting

What is Wood Badge? Why would a Scout Leader want to attend more training? What does one bring to six days of training? Will I know anyone? Why the heck, would I want to sleep in a canvas tent? I heard there are critters...what is that all about? Why do I need to talk to the Course Director or Scout Master, won't I meet him or her later? What kind of food will we eat? What on earth is a ticket, and how do I work it? Do I really need a six day training outdoor experience?

I had a million questions, as I pulled into Beaumont Scout Reservation, and I was seeking answers! I knew that I wanted to learn, and find out why everyone says that Wood Badge would be life changing. Yes, I was early...yes, I was in the wrong building...yes, the training hadn't even started and I felt like a dummy! Once, I figured out that I needed to be at Svedrup Lodge and not the Emerson Center (Yes, Wood Badge has it's own building!) I was greeted warmly by our Council Advisor Fred Schaljo! 

We were given a few handouts, and then told that we would take a tour, meet with the Course Director Mark Lester, talk to ASM "Logistics" Bob Palmer , and then finally sit down for a meeting that would answer our questions! I have to tell you, that I was nervous to sit down with our Scout Master...no idea why, but I really was! He asked if I had any special, food, or medical needs...ummm, no! Whoo hoo, I aced question number one! We then just chatted about why I chose to attend Wood Badge, and just how excited I was to be able to attend this training. He asked if I had any other questions, shook my hand, and told me that he was very happy to meet me.

Let's just say that I walked away very excited, and 99% of my questions were answered! I did know a few Scout Leaders, and I met many new friendly Scouts! I now had contact information and resources in the event, I had more questions. I now had a packing list, and the next challenge was to gather what I need. I could do this! I could survive six days in the woods! I will be a great Scout Leader!

Bring on Wood Badge Course C3-312-14-2!
