Program Planning

The promise of being a Scout is to see the great outdoors and the chance to go hiking, climbing, and camping.  The root of Scouting, though, is about so much more.  It’s about learning how to care for the environment as you explore it, learning how to give back to your community, and about being prepared to make good choices in life.

There are a number of resources available in Spanish and English to help you prepare for a successul Scouting year.
