Scouting mailing lists

Note: there are other overviews of mailing lists on the Internet. If you cannot find what you're looking for on this page, try:

The SCOUTS-L listserver

Many great discussions regarding Scouting and Guiding are going on on the mailing list SCOUTS-L.

Archives can be found at the scouter.com archive of SCOUTS-L.


The E-SCOUTS project

A project of setting up a world wide information service with a much broader scope than these WWW pages is currently being examined by a group of people, including myself, called the E-SCOUTS project.


The Scouting-Europe listprocessor

Another mailing list, focussed on European Scouting, is Scouting-Europe.


Girl scout / girl guide mailing lists

A list aimed especially at Girl Scouting / Girl Guiding is WAGGGS-L.

There is another one, called Guiding.


ExplorerNet

The new list for Explorer Posts, Rover crews and other Scouts in this age-group (world-wide) is called explorer-net . Unfortunately, the URL for the information page seems to be gone, but you can subscribe through: listproc@scouter.com. The message should read subscribe explorer-net Your Name.


Rovers-L

A similar list is the International Rovers Mailing List. To subscribe, send email to majordomo@nwis.bc.ca with the message "subscribe rovers-l".


Seascout-net

A list for sea-scouts (world wide, but mainly USA) is available under the name Seascout-Net.


Woodbadge list

There is a Wood Badge mailing list (mostly U.S.A.) called WDBADGE-L@AMERICAN.EDU intended for people who have participated of staffed a Wood Badge course. Subscribe through listserv@american.edu with a message containing: SUBSCRIBE WDBADGE-L Your Full Name

There is also a Woodbadge staff mailinglist. Seems to be specifically for BSA Woodbadge, not international.


Patch trading

A list especially aimed at patch trading is PATCH-L.


JOTA-L & JOTI-L

JOTA-L is a list for scouters or radioamateurs, that want to share ideas, plans or just want to hear whats JOTA (Jamboree On The Air) is all about. This is where you can meet other people that have the interest in radio-scouting.

JOTI-L is the list where scouts can share ideas, plans or maybe just want to hear whats JOTI (Jamboree On The Internet) is all about.
