About Kevin V Hunt
Greetings! I am Kevin Hunt, an author, writer, speaker, veteran Scouter and camp director. I very much enjoy writing and sharing the material with others. I've been writing for several years - mostly in the area of Scouting and youth leadership. I write regularly for three Scouting blogsites. Much of what I write comes from 46 years plus of keeping a daily journal. In the journals, I have a great library of data that was recorded as it happened. I drive a school bus and work at Scout camps in the summers with my wife. The driver schedule gives me free time each day as I have breaks and time between bus runs. I enjoy many hobbies including carving walking sticks, family history research, record keeping, and indexing, Dutch oven cooking, camping, cooking and catering, event planning, and everything Scouting. I am married with nine children and 37 grandchildren. I enjoy planning and staging gatherings of all kinds for family and friends.

Scouting in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints: The History of the Century-long Partnership (Scouting Trails Book 8) Apr 11, 2019
Says Elder Vaughan J. Featherstone:Here you have the finest history of Scouting in the Church ever written. The research was impeccable. It contains some of the greatest quotes of some of the greatest leaders of the Kingdom in this dispensation. It is a treasury of the greatest Scouters, concepts, philosophies, principles and especially History of Boy Scouts of America and the Church. This book is a classic and should be on every Bishop and Stake President’s shelf.Kevin Hunt’s multiple callings and service with all the dimensions of Scouting has qualified him to write this profoundly detailed book on the Principles of Scouting. You will appreciate the marvelous research back over the 100 years the Church has sponsored Scouting. I know of no one who has collected quotes from more Brethren, sources and his own personal experiences than Kevin Hunt has done.The Scouting program within The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is indeed a treasured history to be studied and remembered. ...So it should be with our memories of our Scouting associations and experiences. Even though we will no longer have official church affiliation with Scouting, the legacy is there. How can we ever forget the training received, the recitation and daily living of the Scout Oath and Law? How can we dismiss the Scouting traditions so ingrained in us through family generations? How can we forget those special times around the campfire, the brotherhood shared with our brothers – fellow Scouts and leaders – our Scouting brothers? Scouting will and should live on in each of us. That is why this book is written … it need not be the final chapter.All former Scouts, leaders, parents, teachers, trainers, and everyone who has been a part of Scouting should commit to keeping the Scouting legacy alive. We should each commit anew each day to remember and live the Scouting ideals in our own lives. And we need to record and share our Scouting experiences with our progeny. Who knows but what our Scouting experiences will some day be quoted as are our ancestor stories or even the stories and experiences of Nephi and other great men who have lived before? What will be our Scouting legacy that we leave behind? As noted already, the Scouting principles that we have learned are eternal. Though the delivery methods and programs may change, the principles will live on.It is in this spirit that you are given opportunity to read and study again of the Scouting legacy within The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It truly is a grand legacy and there is much that is good and great as we celebrate the past associations and then together begin new chapters in the days ahead.
