Scouting \ Outdoor Skills

Created with Sketch.

Our family is very involved is getting outdoors, learning life skills, and going on adventures. While sports are fun, their practicality is limited beyond high school/college for a vast majority who play them. The same lessons and so much more can be learned while scouting. Here are some organizations we recommend for these actives:

Boy Scouts of America (Scouts BSA) – While recent policy changes have been disappointing, they are still a great organization that has been around for over 100 years!

Cub Scouts – For ages 5-10 (Grades K-5) – Some “Packs” are boy only, other are Family Packs (Boys & Girls). There is a “Den” for each grade level and separate dens for boy and girls in the pack.

Levels are: Lion (K), Tiger (1st), Wolf (2nd), Bear (3rd), WEBELOS (4th), and Arrow of Light (5)

Boy Scouts – For ages 10-18 (Grades 6-12) – There are Boy and Girl “Troops”. This is NOT a co-ed program. Boy and Girl Troops are separate.

A Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent.

… as a result of BSA policy changes, we are also involved in more christian centered, outdoor leadership/adventure programs:

American Heritage Girls (AHG) – For Girls ages 5-18

Trail Life USA (TLUSA) – For Boys ages 5-18

And while you are enrolling you child, please consider being a leader and be a part of molding our youth!
