I am proud to be the recipient of Scoutings Highest award

The greatest award of Scouting is the Promise.

Delivering the promise every Tuesday night…

But Scouting is far more than fun in the outdoors, hiking and camping. Scouting is a way of life. Scouting is growing into responsible manhood, learning to be of service to others.

Isaiah  recognized the soaring Eagle. Beautiful in Flight and lifted by God on a cushion of Air.

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Eagles start in the Boy Scouts as Tiger Cubs. They are partnered with their parents or Adult Guardians . They grow through shared experiences and mentorship until Boy Scouting.

Boy Scouting brings the Promise. It also brings Adult Male mentor-ship and Youth Lead program.

Baden Powell stressed the Learning through First Class and Religious immersion into our environment

By First Class a Scout has learned the skills of survival and the beginnings of leadership.

Character building begins at the Oaths.

God is introduced Early and Often.

God and Me through God and Country are introduced and encouraged. Each religion has their awards for service and study

Leadership and Service- Awards are not everything. Dedicated Adults and parents deliver the Promise of Scouting each week. Volunteers striving to make the Youth of today their Best.
