It’s a big world. Pack a map. Scouting is the introduction for many young men and women’s to the great outdoors and, most important, a lesson on their place in it.
Scouting builds leaders. Former Scouts sit on the boards of global corporations, walk the halls of the White House and have been known to occasionally go hiking on the moon. The life lessons young people learn in Scouting help them make good decisions throughout their life.
Many Scouts achieve more before the age of 18 than some people do in a lifetime. Best of all, they do it to not only improve themselves but also their communities.
Beyond outdoor adventures and programs, today’s Scouting uses innovation and technology to harness youth’s natural curiosity and prepare them for success.
