We all have one thing in common – we realize the value of Scouting in a child’s life. Scouting has always been about the growth of the child. Keeping current with the developmental needs of children has always been a technique used in Scouting. Scouting helps to develop youth into good citizens and stewards of our environment.
Scouting Helps Young People in Five Critical Areas of Positive Youth Development
Connection: Scouts are part of the community they live in, something bigger than themselves.
Competency: Scouts learn basic skills that help them every day and throughout life.
Confidence: Through leadership and experience, they gain self confidence.
Caring: A Scout is a friend to all and through community service, they develop a sense of caring.
Character: A Scout lives by the Scout Oath & Law to be a person with strong values
