BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICAN NATIONAL COUNCIL
September 12, 2009
Boy Scouting is not just about campfires.
Our children are offered many extra-curricular opportunities, most of which focus on competition against other individuals or teams. The Boy Scout program focuses on character development, service to others, and developing leadership skills.
Boy Scout meetings are conducted by the youth members rather than adults. Activities are planned by the youth members with adult assistance. Older boys teach the younger boys skills such as tying knots, first aid, and using a map and compass. Through these activities, the boys learn to work together and to lead others.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
development of my own parenting and leadership skills by volunteering within my son's Cub Scout pack and Boy Scout troop.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
offer financial assistance to many more Scouts unable to afford camping and adventure programs.
