GREAT FOR SCOUTS. EVEN BETTER FOR FAMILIES.
Every second with your kid is a second well spent. Scouting gives you that valuable time with them that the everyday world often doesn’t allow. There will always be dentist appointments and lawns to mow. But with Scouting, you have time ’re guaranteed a few days a month away from everything, with the child who means everything to you.
TAUGHT BY ADVENTURE.
Scouting lets kids figure out how to do things by diving in and actually doing them. You can read a book about how flint and steel make fire. You can listen to someone explain the process. But until you strike that first spark yourself, you’ll never really understand how it’s done. Scouting lets Scouts take the lead and learn for themselves. They might never be asked how to start a fire in a job interview or on a grad school application. But by doing things for themselves, they learn to take the initiative when it really counts. Like, say, when interviewing for a job or applying to grad school.
BETTER PERSON PRACTICE.
Take a kid to baseball practice and you’ll get a better fielder. Take a kid to piano practice and they’ll learn their scales. Sign a kid up for Scouting and they’ll learn how to be a better person. Sure, Scouting is about backpacking trips, service projects and Pinewood Derbies. But more than that, it’s about showing kids what it feels like to do the right thing over and over again, so they’ll learn to make a habit of it their whole life.
