BSA.tifCouncil Leadership

For almost a century, Scouting has instilled in young men the values and knowledge that they will need to become leaders in their communities and country. On the front lines, making this happen, is our Executive Board and Council Leadership.

22The Scouting Program

In the outdoors, youth have opportunities to acquire skills that make them more self-reliant. They can explore canoe and hiking trails and complete challenges they first thought were beyond their ability. Attributes of good character become part of a youth as they learn to cooperate to meet outdoor challenges that may include extreme weather, difficult trails and portages, and dealing with nature’s unexpected circumstances.
