Scouting promises you the great outdoors. As a Scout, you can learn how to camp and hike without leaving a trace and how to take care of the land. You’ll study wildlife up close and learn about nature all around you. There are plenty of skills for you to master, and you can teach others what you have learned.
Do Your Best.
Have Fun Doing It.
The best way to find out what you do best is to do it. Swing a bat. Pitch a tent. Build a pinewood derby® car. Cub Scouts are at that magical age where everything is new and possible and most important, fun. They live in a world of “firsts” — first home run, first campfire, first checkered flag — where their game plan is their imagination. Their most valuable reward, the friends they make for life and a parent’s proud smile. These are invaluable experiences that can be had in Scouting. These are life lessons that transform today’s Cub Scouts into tomorrow’s Boy Scouts.
Most boys avoid obstacles. Boy Scouts seek them. They live for any opportunity to display their abilities while learning new skills. Camping is fun. But surviving a downpour in the middle of the night, that’s an adventure. Cooking over a campfire is fun. Learning which wild berries are edible is survival. Spending a weekend in the woods is fun. Breaking camp without leaving a trace is admirable. These are invaluable experiences that can be had in Scouting. These are life lessons that transform today’s Boy Scouts into tomorrow’s leaders.
Challenge Your World.
Life is a series of tests. Shooting the rapids. Rappelling a cliff. Writing a resume. Each one can be a setback, or a chance to shine. Working as a team, the young adults in every Venturing crew welcome the opportunity to pass these trials. A series of successes that build one upon another. Every person playing their role. No one more important than their partners. No challenge achievable without cooperation. These are invaluable experiences that can be had in Scouting. These are life lessons that transform today’s Venturers into tomorrow’s responsible adults.
