My son is entering his 5th and final year as cub scout. I have also been committee chairmen for a couple of years now. I look at all the opportunities that scouting has given my son and I am amazed. I just can't get over all of the outdoor activities that the scouts do right in our own neighbor hood. Also it really teaches the boys to be responsible not only for them selves but for the environment also. The boys also learn allot of useful skills to help them through life. Also the day camps that the council holds in summer and winter are very well planned out. I was kind of amazed at all of the different skills that are learned at these camps. I think that every parent should allow their boys to have a taste of scouting. I wish I would have had the opportunity to be a scout when I was younger. I think there are allot of good people in scouting who really want to see it succeed.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
Great, well organized and on top of things. They always try hard to do their best.
