Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, and Venturers have a lot of fun discovering new things and experiences they wouldn't have elsewhere. Along the way they develop into capable, confident and well-rounded individuals, better prepared for success in the world. Scouting offers a world where youth can discover the best in themselves and the best in others, and offers adventures that they will remember for a lifetime!

    3. Follow your instincts. …
    4. Take note of your personal tastes. …
    5. Reinterpret creative lessons.
