IDEALS - The ideals of Scouting are spelled out in the Scout Oath, Law, Motto and Slogan. The Scout measures himself against these ideals and continually tries to improve.
PATROLS - The Patrol Method gives Scouts an experience in group living and participating citizenship.
OUTDOORS - It is in the outdoors that Scouts share responsibilities and learn to live with each other. It is here that the skills and activities practiced at Troop Meetings come alive with purpose.
ADVANCEMENT - Scouting provides a series of surmountable obstacles and steps to overcome with appropriate recognition and advancement.
ADULT ASSOCIATION - Boys learn from the examples set by their adult leaders.
PERSONAL GROWTH - As Scouts plan their activities and progress toward their goals, they experience personal growth. Boys grow as they participate in community service projects and do Good Turns to others.
LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT - Boy Scouting encourages boys to learn and practice leadership skills.
UNIFORM - The uniform makes the Scout Troop visible as a force for good and creates a positive youth image in the community. Wearing the uniform shows a Scout's commitment to the aims and purposes of Scouting.
