In “Boyhood, Organized Sports, and the Construction of Masculinities”, Michael Messner used interviews as a research method to gain information from males who previously played organized sports. Messner gathers qualitative data by asking questions similar to this: How does playing sports affect your relationship with your father? How does winning affect your relationships outside of sports? He also gathers a small amount of quantitative data by figuring out how many white, black and Hispanic males are in his study. Messner collected this information by recording in-depth interviews with the men, the interviews lasted between one and a half to six hours. Since Messner only gathered 30 males to be interviewed for his research it was not considered a “randomly selected” sample, but he did try to get a wide variety between race, social class and age in

Camping has been one of the main events in the Scouting program ever since it was first made. Camping at a locally owned or troop owned camp has also been a big thing. Sadly, many of these camps are dying out due to budget and low income of scouts. Ferris State Bulldog and Eagle Scout Raymond Sundquist has a solution. Sunquist believes “If we were able to get more kids involved in the Scouting program, we wouldn’t have such a huge problem in not finding enough scouts to run the camps” (Sundquist). Sundquist also believes that one of the biggest problems of not having many young boys and teens in the scouting program is because there has been a mixed feelings in the community for scouting.

As an Eagle Scout member of the Boy Scouts of America, I have the privilege to contribute to the community by teaching younger Cub Scouts social, technical, and leadership skills to improve their lives.

Baden-Powell implicitly articulates that to become a “real man,” one must avoid traditional feminine behavior, ultimately proving Judith Butler’s point, that female figures within the British Empire are labeled opposite of men because they rely on the help of male figures and lack traditional male
I believe in Scouting. Not just Boy Scouts, because that would take away the credit from the hundreds of thousands of scouting organizations that are out there like Girls Scouts, but just scouting and the ideals that are upheld by scouting at its finest.

It was early in the year 2012 when I encountered my first craving for sleep, just before a backpacking excursion.

My 12 year old brother, Luke, was the other patrol leader and he helped keep a healthy rivalry between our patrols. My patrol’s name was the Golden Grizzlies, and Luke’s patrol name was the Spartans.
