Turning Good Kids Into Tomorrow’s Leaders
For almost 100 years, Scouting programs have instilled in youth the values found in the Scout Oath and Scout Law. Today, these values are just as relevant in helping youth grow to their full potential as they were in 1910. Scouting helps youth develop academic skills, self-conﬁdence, ethics, leadership skills, and citizenship skills that inﬂuence their adult lives.
With more than 130 Merit Badges—from Archery and Art to Welding and Wilderness Survival—Scouting is the ultimate form of learning by doing. Boy Scouts explore their interests and improve their skills while working toward Scouting’s highest rank: Eagle. By ﬁrst imagining, planning then doing their own service projects, Boy Scouts learn the value of hard work, and experience the thrill of seeing it pay oﬀ. Add in outdoor adventures, hiking and camping, and Scouting gives boys all the experience they need to become men.
Boy Scouts Troop 14 meets every Monday evening at 7:00pm at VFW Post 5221 in Calhan.
