Scouting is a youth development program focused on leadership, character development, citizenship training, and personal fitness. Through 4 traditional programs and an inner-city outreach program, ScoutReach, we are positively impacting the lives of over 5,000 youth and their families in Lancaster and Lebanon Counties. Scouting uses different outdoor experiences, such as camping, to allow youth to experience new things and build self-confidence. Scouting’s activities are designed to teach basic skills, promote teamwork, and encourage youth to achieve a deeper appreciation for service to others in their community. These life-changing experiences—and the confidence they provide—become stepping stones that form a foundation that a Scout can stand on to embrace opportunity and overcome obstacles. When one of our Eagle Scouts was asked “How has Scouting impacted your life?”, he responded: I closed my college essay as follows: “The reward of being an Eagle Scout is not the title, but the internal appreciation that I can truly execute the Scout Oath in my everyday life: ‘On my honor, I will do my best, to do my duty to God and my country, to obey the Scout Law, to help other people at all times, and to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.’ Because of my experience in Scouting, serving as drum major of the marching band, editor of the school news blog, captain of the quiz bowl team, president of the Model United Nations, and Sunday School teacher for a rambunctious group of second and third graders are all doable tasks. And not just that: they are great joys in my life, joys I can thank Scouting for equipping me to do.” – Ben P. With the help of 130 community organizations, 2,900 volunteers, and many donors, we are “Preparing Youth. For Life.”
