About Us

What is Scout Spirit?

The Spirit of Scouting is within each boy. The oath and the law are all part of it, but, also pride. Pride in one’s self, den, pack, family, and nation; pride in one’s accomplishments.

The awards are hollow and meaningless unless he met his trials with determination and did his best to overcome them. The pack and its leadership exist only for the boys; to challenge them to bigger challenges and honor them for their accomplishments. 

Scout spirit is not based on how many Scouting events or outings a scout attends, but rather by how those events - those moments - help bring out the best in himself and others.

Scout spirit applies to how he lives and how he conducts his daily life - that is, his life both in and out of scouting activities.

You show Scout spirit by being a role model and living by the Scout Oath and Law.

Scouting is for the boy and his family. It teaches the boy skills and helps to show him the right way. It works to teach adults understanding and compassion.

But most of all Scouting is FUN!
