Participation in Boy Scouting means enjoying a lot of things together with other scouts.
Scouting provides great adventure in outdoor learning. It designs activities that bring about the development of skills that will turn boys into dependable and self-reliant men. As they advance to higher ranks, the merit badges they earn will make their world larger. After exploring varied fields of skills and knowledge, they will be helped to choose a hobby or life work. Through the Eagle Scout Badge or the Jose Rizal Scout Badge, the highest ranks in Boy Scouting, they will pretty soon fulfill their dreams and follow the examples set by our greatest national hero.
Lord Baden Powell, the founder of scouting said that “a scout is one who thoroughly trains himself in scoutcraft and places that training at the disposal of the community for public service.” The badges they wear are symbols, which say that they will continue to build and to keep friendship, give happiness to others with their daily good deeds, and live the ideals of the Scout Oath and Law. Scouts grow up to be upright and respectable citizens of the community and of the country.
A scout is somebody all of us can be proud of.
