The Founder of Scouting
“We never fail when we try to do our duty, we always fail when we neglect to do it.”
“The most important object in Boy Scout training is to educate, not instruct.”
“The sport in Scouting is to find the good in every boy and develop it.”
“There is no teaching to compare with example.”
“Loyalty is a feature in a boy’s character that inspires boundless hope.”
The mission of Scouts BSA is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
There are four aims of Scouting: citizenship, character, personal fitness, and leadership.
The methods of Cub Scouting are: living the ideals, belonging to a den, advancement, family involvement, activities, serving the community, and the uniform.
