Profile Information

Are you a member of a current BPSA group? If so, which?
(My website Bio): Ben Jamin Walker travelled in over 30 countries, lived alone with tribes like the Kung San Bushmen of the African Kalahari in 1984, the Cree Nation of sub-arctic Canada, and tribes in the deep jungles of Honduras, and then returned to teach. In his lifetime of learning traditional life-skills directly from tribes, Ben realized that these are the skills that our human minds and bodies were designed for. Even our personal attraction to these vital skills are embedded in our DNA. These skills are HOW humans are designed to reach maturity, and these actions develop our brain and body to it's full potential. Ben focuses on giving our young students real skills and experiences, with the vision that they can one day teach their grandchildren, as mankind has done all through history.

As a teenage Boy Scout in the 1980's, Ben was hired by BSA Camp Winton for three years. And in 2002 Ben was hired as the Scoutcraft Director at BSA Camp Chawanakee. Ben has also taught at 3 camps for Scouting Mexico, and has extensive experience at many other camps including camps created and directed by Ben himself.

Ben retired in 2014 after 15 years of working as a professional Naturalist for Merced County Office of Education's Yosemite 6th-Grade Camp at Green Meadows Outdoor School, where he taught 2,100 to 3,600 boys and girls every school-year out in the woods since 1999. He has taught hundreds of classes in Miwok Culture, Astronomy, Night Hiking, Giant Sequoia Ecology, Forest Ecology, Geology, Nature Detectives, Orienteering, Stream Ecology, Team Challenge, Wilderness Ethics, Wildlife Ecology, and Snow Science.

Ben Jamin Walker is as well the inventor of Knot Fu, an artful and much easier and systematic way to tie knots. And it's crazy fun too.
Are you interested in starting a new BPSA group?
None, but I will start a group with kids from Mainland China, here in San Jose California.
Any previous scouting background?
Yes, see above.
