Scouts up with the times
By Christopher Morrical, Danville Commercial-News

One local Scout leader, Parker Arnholt, wants everyone to know that even though the group is changing with the times, it’s also still the same old Scouts. One of the things he’s seen change since his childhood days is an adaptation of the merit badge program to be able to give kids an opportunity to learn about new technologies that are happening. This now includes programs in robotics, chemistry and video game design. The Scouts now also have online training to help with adult leadership — who usually have work and kids in their lives — to be able to more easily learn the tools they need to provide a quality program. There’s also now a website called Scoutbook and a Scouting app to help see where the individual stands in earning badges.
