The Boy Scouts is an internationally recognized program that focuses on developing character and leadership skills in young men. Many people think that Scouting is all about camping and earning merit badges. It is so much more than that. Scouting teaches young men the skills that are not taught in school. They learn how to apply the Scout Law in their daily lives:
A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent.
The Boy Scouts are guided by adult leaders, but much of the program and the events are lead by the Scouts. The adult leaders provide general oversight and guidance, but the more active the Scouts the more active the program.
For over 100 years the Boy Scouts have developed a program that helps the Scouts learn life's skills in a fun and engaging environment. There are many activities and programs that ask of our time each month from our youth. However, none of them offer the type of skill training and benefits that they can receive from Boy Scouts.
There are a great number of things the Boy Scouts do that will impact each young man. We do camp on a regular basis. They learn about nature, the weather, the importance of planning, and how to do these things on their own. We perform various community service projects throughout the year, and yes, we do work on merit badges as well.
The Boy Scout program is open to any young man from 5th grade up to 18 years old. No experience is required and we especially welcome those former Scouts who might want to give it another try.
