Through The Years

Scouting And Scouting Activities

As with many organizations and activities, there is a culture particular to Boy Scouts and Scouting. Scouts are bound together – linked with others from the past, present and future – by traditions, codes and laws. They are connected through Scout requirements, achievements and awards, upholding standards established long ago and held as truths. Today’s Scouts enjoy many of the same activities as the very first Scouts, 100 years ago. They hike. They camp. They tell stories and learn lessons of life around blazing campfires. They earn merit badges, develop skills and values and pass along traditions to younger Scouts. Scouting is an enduring tradition, relying on the foundation of the past as it moves into the future. That isn’t to say that Scouting has stood still or is stuck in the past.
