The Scouting Programs
Scouting programs and outdoor adventures give young people the opportunity and freedom to explore a world beyond the boundaries of everyday life. It presents them with chances to try new things, provide service to others, build self-confidence and develop leadership skills. These experiences not only help Scouts while they are young but also stay with them throughout their adult lives, growing into exceptional men and women who respect their family, community, religion, country, and themselves.
