The Mission of Scouting is to contribute to the education of young people, through a value system based on the Scout Promise and Law, to help build a better world where people are self-fulfilled as individuals and play a constructive role in society.
We are invested in a process of non-formal education through a specific value system that helps boys and girls become the principal agents of their development as committed, responsible, self-reliant and supportive persons.
Scouting is all about learning by doing. Scouts do not learn from theory, but from experience and practice. Through activities that include building and renovation, exploration and hiking, and community service, Scouts develop the emotional, intellectual, physical, social, and spiritual skills needed to become leaders and active members of society.
Scouting provides youth with an opportunity to try new things, provide service to others, build self-confidence, and reinforce ethical standards. These opportunities not only help them when they are young but also carry forward into their adult lives, improving their relationships, their work lives, their family lives, and the values by which they live.
Parents tell us Scouting gives their children more confidence, responsibility and interaction with a wider set of friends. Scouting can help develop your child’s social skills and encourage self-sufficiency, and gives them access to activities and opportunities that may have been otherwise unavailable to them.
