I have found your site fascinating. It is so interesting to explore all the
differences and similarities in the scouting "families"

I really enjoy your site - as a scout leader in the middle east, it is essential to have resources on-line and yours is one of the best.

As a lapsed scout, but a current teacher taking a group away shortly, can I thank you for all the hard work put into collating all those songs into one place - printing them out and reading them through has brought back many happy memories of evenings spent around the campfire.

I've found your web site an excellent resource for knots. Keep it up!

Wow you have a really great site here with lots of info. Even though I am in the USA I will be adding this site link to our own Pack Web page. You have lots of great ideas.

Thank you for such a superb site, I am a secondary school teacher, many of your ideas translate brilliantly in to the classroom, a few of the games have already been used with great success, many can be adapted to fit in with the national curriculum. So a very big thank you from a very grateful school teacher.

I just have to say that as a new cub leader I find your web site absolutely brilliant and am forced to refer to your site many times for inspiration and good ideas. Thanks for producing such a site.

I just wanted to say thank you to whoever created such a wonderful site. You must have put so much work and time into writing and loading all these resources. It is by far the best site that I have found, and I have been looking for awhile!

Seeking information on weather lore, I happened upon your website this evening and wished to pass along my compliments to you for a job well done

As a new CSL at the 6th Abingdon, Oxford, UK. I find your site very helpful

These down loads are a great resource in finding the words for forgotten favourites & throwing up new songs.

It is brilliant to have somewhere to go where there are some practical ideas for the cubs

I have been looking at your scouting songs which are brilliant.
