Why You Should Become a Scout

Scouting introduces children to adventure and helps them build lifelong friendships.

Scouting helps kids become the best versions of themselves

Since 1910, Scouting hasn’t been so much about camping and hiking as it is about finding the spark. The spark may be a leader’s encouraging words, achieving a merit badge for engineering or going on a high-adventure rafting trip. There’s no telling what the spark might be for a young person, but it ignites a fire within that just might burn for a lifetime.

For Adventure.

It’s a big world. Pack a map. Scouting is many youths’ first introduction to the great outdoors and, most importantly, a lesson on their place in it.

For Leadership.

Scouting builds leaders. Former Scouts sit on the boards of global corporations, walk the halls of the White House and have been known to occasionally go hiking on the moon. The life lessons learned in Scouting help Scouts make good decisions throughout their lives.

For Service.

Many Scouts achieve more before the age of 18 than some people do in a lifetime. Best of all, they do it not only to improve themselves but also their communities.

For Learning.

Beyond outdoor adventures and programs, today’s Scouting uses innovation and technology to harness youths’ natural curiosity and prepare them for success.
