Traditional Scouting uses outdoor recreation to promote strong values, build self-confidence, and promote healthy, active living, developing the next generation of leaders. Programs for boys and girls ages 5 and up.
Scouting's method consists of several innovative educational ideas. The law and promise to put the values of Scouting into simple language that young people can easily understand and apply to everyday situations. In Scouting, young people learn by doing. They are given real challenges and given the skills to meet those challenges.
The adult leadership ensures that the challenges are at the right level, that the young people have the skills they need, and that safety is taken care of so that the young people will always be safe. Scouting activities are progressive, building new skills on old ones as the young people grow and develop. Personal progression is marked with badges that are earned for completion of various requirements and mastery of skills. Young people in Scouting do most of their activities in small groups which bring together new and experienced members. The more experienced members provide leadership and training to the younger ones, under the supervision of the adults. Everyone has the opportunity to develop and put into practise leadership skills.
The program is supported by uniforms, badges, ceremonies, and stories which help to communicate the key ideas of Scouting and make it attractive to young people. Scouting takes place primarily in the outdoors. Out in nature, young people learn about our dependence on the environment and their mutual interdependence on each other.
