Scouting on the World Wide Web

The World Wide Web is the hottest thing in Cyberspace these days. The amount of stuff out there is growing at an enormous rate. The amount of Scouting related stuff out there is growing at the same rate. If you are not familiar with terms like HTML, HTTP, URLs and hyperlinks, you will be soon.

If you do not have access to the Web, you can retrieve any URL by sending (SEND "URL address") to (listserv@info.cern.ch) .

Places to Start Browsing

There are a few very good places to begin Scouting on the Web. This section will give you some of those starting places. The number of Scouting related Web home pages is increasing daily, so that there is no way to exhaustively catalog them. Go browse for yourself.

Major US Sites

A major US site is the Berkeley Troop 24 home page, provided by Alan R. Houser, Scoutmaster. This home page can be found at http://www.emf.net/~troop24/t24.html . Besides providing a lot of information about their troop, this home page provides a link to the Mount Diablo Silverado Council home page.

There are now a lot of Boy Scout Troops with their own home pages. You can find some links at http://www.emf.net/~troop24/scouting/otherbsa.html. There are also links to OA Lodge, Explorer and other unit home pages at this site.

There are even some Cub Scout Packs that have home pages. There are links to them at http://www.emf.net/~troop24/scouting/cubs.html .

Some other interesting places go to on the Web

There must be hundreds of Scouting related URLs by now. One gets that feeling particularly when browsing pages on non-US servers, because they provide many scouting links I've never heard of before. Thanks to many people for the growing list below:
