Three ways to document your Scouting adventure

When you go on a Scout trip — whether it’s hiking, camping or something else — you’re making memories. Consider keeping a journal of your Scout outings that will keep those memories fresh for years to come.

Here are some ideas:

Photographs. Most mobile devices can take amazing pictures and video. So can the variety of relatively inexpensive cameras available for purchase. Here’s a hint: Don’t have your buddies pose for the camera. Instead, document the event by capturing your fellow Scouts in action.

Drawings. A sketchbook and a couple of pencils don’t take up that much space. Consider sketching some of the plants, animals and landscapes that you encounter on your next trip.

Journals. All you need is a simple notebook, and all you have to do is write something short every day. Keep a log of wildlife you see, the weather you encounter and anything else that happens along the way.
