Scouting is unique journey and is unlike anything your son may have experienced before.
Scouting is different than school or organized sports because a Boy Scout troop allows the opportunity for the youth to be in charge. THEIR requests become our agenda. THEIR ideas for adventure, fun, and excitement are what the adults guide them to fruition. In Scouting, THEY speak and the adults listen.
By practicing representative democracy, they pick their own leaders who form the “Patrol Leader Council,” which creates the monthly/yearly agenda. Scouts work together on every issue, from what to eat at camp to deciding who will wash dishes and shop for food. They learn to practice communication, public speaking, teamwork, conflict-resolution and leadership skills. Skills they will need to excel in the “real world”.
By taking advantage of any of the 136 (as of April 2015) possible merit badges, they gain exposure to areas of interest ranging from Aviation to Small Boat Sailing and much more. Statistically, the Merit Badge program often leads to life-long hobbies and even career choices. At a minimum, Merit Badges help a young man try things he may never have had a chance to do if not for the Scouting experience, such archery, sailing, or camping.
