As a parent you want your son to grow up to be a person of worth, a self-reliant, dependable and caring individual. Scouting has the same goals in mind for him. Since 1910, scouting has been weaving lifetime values into fun and educational activities designed to assist parents in strengthening character, developing good citizenship and enhancing physical fitness in youth.
These values help your son make good decisions throughout his lifetime and give him confidence as he becomes an adult leader of tomorrow.
With all of the negative influences in today's society, scouting provides your son with a positive peer group and a program that is fun and adventurous and helps him to "be prepared" to shape his own future.
