Adventure is what scouting is all about. Admit it, camping, and hiking are the real reasons most boys join scouts in the first place. Then add in some nature so that scouts understand the land they are camping on, and some Indian Lore so that they learn from America's first campers, and you have the essence of what U.S. scouting was founded on over a hundred years ago. Boys join scouts not for leadership or personal growth, not for advancement and recognition - all great things that scouting offers - they join for the adventure! Take the outing out of scouting, as they tried to do in the mid-1970s, and the boys will leave. Make adventure a central part of your scout program, and not only will the boys stay, but leadership and advancement will follow. This site is about keeping the adventure in scouting.
