Looking for stocking stuffer ideas this Christmas? The Day Pack First-Aid kit from REI could be something to get your scout (or leader). With the basic components to keep this small and perfect for simple scout medical needs, the price couldn’t be better at under $8. Their larger version was given to me as a gift last year and has been with me on every backpacking trip since! Unfortinately, both models are overstock items from 2009 so quantity will be limited.
"What A Parent's Guide to Raising Successful Missionaries reconfirmed for me was how scouting offers a great opportunity for boys to prepare physically, mentally and morally to serve a mission."
