As a Boy Scout, you learn valuable skills about leadership, outdoor skills, and life skills. Boy Scouts go on many exciting trips and adventures, such as climbing mountains, hiking, biking, and going on camping trips to the middle of nowhere.

Scouting is a worldwide youth organization. Its aim is to develop young people physically, spiritually and mentally so that youth may take a constructive place in society. This is achieved through non-formal education with emphasis on practical activities in the outdoors. The Scout Movement was founded in 1907 by Robert Baden-Powell, a retired Lieutenant General in the British Army. He was also at that time a good friend of William Alexander Smith, Founder of the Boys' Brigade. Currently Scouting and Guiding have over 38 million members in 217 countries and territories.
