I am now only on the committee. I do not lead meetings. I used to be the 11 year old scout leader. I would do active things for a few minutes every meeting. Like while we were learning the oath and law we would play catch. (Like hot potato.) I would break up a meeting with activity whenever I could.

I love myself and therefore can make the best choices to help me reach my goals.

I remind myself daily what my goals are and which direction I want to go.

I can to this.
We can do this together.
We will continue on this journey until our dreams become our realities.

Based on the length of time between post and reponse I'm going to assume we're not alone. We frankly didn't do so well in 2012, been wondering about 2013. I suppose the obvious thing to do is incorporate some sort of active game into the meeting plan. Tougher to do in the winter depending on where you are but not impossible. Maybe incorporate the fitness testing as a monthly check in?

I suppose we could find a Personal Fitness MB counselor to work with the scouts and use the MB as incentive to do the physical fitness testing every week for the first quarter to at least establish a pattern. I'm not a big fan of doing MBs as a troop but reality is something else I suppose.

The ScoutStrong website has ways to build groups and do some competition for recognition purposes. I didn't have much luck getting my kids/parents to buy into the PALA though. They just didn't want to log into another website to track information, or see enough value in the process.

Thanks,

Derek

How are incorporating Physical Fitness into your regular weekly meetings? It is in the 2012 Journey to excellence and I'm looking for ideas. We've started out by doing the boy scout fitness test and we have activities like hiking and canoeing, but I want something that is in the weekly meeting but not the whole meeting. Any ideas?
