Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts have been around for as long as most of us can remember, but I always seem to find out more and more about these programs each year. They involve so much more than just what meets the eye. We’ve featured blogs over the past few weeks highlighting some of the things that make scouting so special. Today we have two more reminders on ways that you and/or your child can become involved. Be sure to visit the websites below for more details.

Be a Boy Scout!

dtkphotosaluteWhy is Boy Scouts important to our family?  “Scouting is fun! The program provides quality time for our family and reinforces the values we are teaching our children: how to be helpful and courteous to others.  Through Scouting, our son David has grown into a kind young person who puts others first. He loves teaching younger Scouts how to cook, camp, and conduct science experiments. David’s self-confidence has grown! Scouting has provided exciting opportunities for him and he’s made new friends.” – Lisa, Scouting parent in Greensboro
