Don’t miss the ‘Are You Tougher Than a Boy Scout?’ website, new trailer

Waiting just gets tougher and tougher.

But with less than four weeks until the premiere of Are You Tougher Than a Boy Scout? on the National Geographic Channel, news about the series is coming faster than you can say “Be Prepared.”

We already know the series debuts at 8 p.m. (7 p.m. Central) on Monday, March 4.

Today’s scoop: A new website for the show,, just launched. The site channels excitement surrounding the show into a recruiting pitch for boys and girls who get inspired to sign up for Scouting. It encourages current Scouts to share their Scouting adventures on Instagram and Twitter. And it’s mobile-optimized to make sure no Scout or potential Scout misses the fun because he’s miles from a desktop computer.

Once the show debuts, will provide series updates and links to Web-only content from National Geographic Channel. If you’re like me and you’ve gotta be among the first to get news about Are You Tougher Than a Boy Scout?, be sure to sign up for email updates right on the site.

Watch the new trailer

In other news today, a new 30-second promo was released. It’s got a different feel from the one I shared on Friday, but I like it.

It’s my understanding that this trailer will be shown on National Geographic Channel some time in the next few weeks. Take a look: 

Promote the show

The BSA’s Marketing team has put together some downloadable digital and print materials so units, districts, and councils can promote the show to Scouts and Scouters.

Find images like the one below at the BSA Marketing Toolbox and share away!

  1. Bryan Thanks for closing the posting on the matter of the upcoming vote tommorrow by the National board I believe that instead of the Board voting it should be every registered Scout Volunteer voting at their local Council and sending the results to the National for counting it would truly be Democratic and unbiased. The last forum was at best a slugfist between the pros and cons. I was getting writers cramp from typing on the computer. Moving on I am looking forward to watching the National Geographic special on Scouting. I will be attending the 2013 National Jamboree and programs like this will help in promoting scouting and will be a plus for recruiting. Congradulations on being named the Best Web Publication Blog/Trade and Consumer at the 2012 Western Publishing Association Maggie awards. Thanks Trenton Spears

  2. Will there be a way to watch the episodes online?

    I do not have cable and will not get the show over the air.

  3. Most of the troops/packs in our council meet on Monday too. Looks like a lot of us are going to have to record it or catch it on rerun. I am really looking forward to seeing this show.

  6. Bryan I watched the National Geographic Special on Are you Tougher than a Boy Scout. It was very entertaining and emphasied the competitive nature of the BSA. The team aspect of the BSA was very well illustrated and I believe the public was given and opportunity to see what todays Scouting is about. One thing I did not like was sending participants home when they lost. I don’t believe we should send anyone home from a Scouting adventure. I hope that future episodes will show more of the eternal functions of the BSA units including the reverent side of Scouting. Sincerely Trenton Spears
