These are "official" links and documents that are helpful to all involved in scouting. Check out our Links page for unofficial links to fun and useful ideas related to scouting. (e.g. scout songs, skits, program ideas, etc.)

Experiential learning is the key: Exciting and meaningful activities are offered, and education happens. Learning comes from doing. For example, youth may read about first aid, hear it discussed, and watch others administer it, but they will not learn it until they practice it. Rushing a Scout through requirements to obtain a badge is not the goal. Advancement should be a natural outcome of a well-rounded unit program, rich in opportunities to work toward the ranks.
