What is Scouting?

Why Choose Scouting?

The Top TEN Reasons Why Scouting Beats TV, Hands Down!
10. No wires, no remote, no batteries required.
9.  Scouting burns more calories.
8.  Scouting is socially interactive.
7.  Scouting doesn't have commercials.
6.  Scouting builds character.
5.  You can't build a campfire in the family room (the fireplace doesn't count).
4.  Scouting builds families.
3.  Scouting provides positive reinforcement and creates positive change.
2.  Scouting promotes a safe environment for your son to acquire new skills and interests.
1.  Scouting is the ULTIMATE Reality Show!


Scouting Builds Character.
Exploring the great outdoors has always been a key part of Scouting and perhaps the most visible one.  But for nearly 100 years, the Boy Scouts of America has existed to provide a program to develop strong, well-rounded citizens from the youth of this country.  That objective hasn't changed.  As a result, Scouting has evolved to become the largest and most inclusive youth organization in the world dedicated to developing the character, citizenship, and personal fitness of its members.

Through organized, age-appropriate activities, Scouting provides skill-development opportunities your child might not otherwise find at home, school, or through other extra-curricular programs, including leadership, team building, and conflict resolution.

Scouting also builds character by developing confidence and self-reliance through positive role models as your child matures.
Scouting Builds CommunityScouting is anything but a self-contained environment.  Its connection to the community is absolutely vital.

Each Scout unit is chartered by a community organization that provides the unit with a place to meet, leaders, and guidance.  Community service projects are a requirement of every Scouting program.  These projects find the Scouts and leaders working side-by-side, often earning the funds to offset their dues and other expenses throughout the year.

You will appreciate getting more involved at different times and levels during your child's Scouting development -- whether it's organizing a meeting, cooking for an event, or helping out with scout requirements.  Your investment will be rewarded with an experience that is unmatched in the difference it can make in your child's life, as well as your own...and it's fun!

Siblings and extended family members can also benefit by participating in family-based activities and programs, and a Scout can serve as a positive role model to younger family members.

An added benefit:  Scout parents are available and positive influence on their children at a time in their lives when they often don't want parents around.
Scouting Builds ValuesThe 12 traits that make up The Scout Law read like every parent's wish list for their children (see below).  Along with the motto of "Be Prepared" and the Scout Slogan "Do a Good Turn Daily", Scouting sets expectations of cooperation, respect, and goodwill -- all success factors in helping build lifelong personal and family values by reinforcing ethical standards.

In a 2005 study, 83% of men who were Scouts agreed that the values they learned in Scouting continue to be very important to them today.
