|Scouting is much more than just a wholesome and enjoyable activity. Active Scouts develop initiative, leadership, self-reliance, and self- confidence. Scouting helps boys become good citizens with strong character, who will become leaders and achievers in the adult world.
Purpose of Boy Scouting
The three specific objectives of the Scouting program are character development, citizenship training, and personal fitness. These goals are achieved by using eight methods commonly known as the “Aims of Scouting”. These include Scouting Ideals, Patrol Method, Advancement, Adult Role Models, Outdoor Program, Leadership Development, Personal Growth, and Scout Uniform.
Troop 123 Goals
Troop 123 is first and foremost a boy run organization. We believe that the greatest growth and experience comes with opportunities for leadership and responsibility. Boy leaders plan, execute, and evaluate the troop program, guided by our BSA-trained adult leaders. The result has been a consistently high-quality program. Troop 123 Scouts earn Boy Scout’s most significant honor, the Eagle award, at eight times the national average.
