Boy Scouts of America: Something for Every Boy and Every Girl

Former Scouting summer camp staffer, Julia Blackburn, shares why every boy and girl can (and should) experience the programs of the Boy Scouts of America. Join today at 

“There are a lot of reasons why I love Scouting. If I had the opportunity, I would have joined. I attended outings with my brother’s Scout troop, and I enjoyed every single one of them. Any time I would go anywhere, I would learn something new and get to do something interesting. It was a good experience even when I attended their weekly meetings. It wasn’t just a club. They were learning life lessons, like leadership. I learned more than I ever thought I would. It’s more than earning merit badges. It’s about being on teams and making friends. It’s a string of experiences that you’ll keep with you forever. Scouting is something that every boy and girl should experience.”
