September 2014 – The How and Why of the Patrol Method

Boy Scout founder Lord Baden-Powell once said, “The Patrol (method) is the one essential feature in which Scout training differs from that of all other organizations, and where properly applied, it is absolutely bound to bring success. It cannot help itself!” So before accepting the position of area director for Area 5 of the Central Region, Mark Griffin was tasked with developing training and a big part of that was helping leaders understand the patrol method and how to get the most from it. He shares a lot of that understanding right here on ScoutCast.
