Our First Adventure with Boy Scouts of America #BuildAnAdventure
Building my son’s character as a parent is such a special honor. It’s something I do not take lightly, for I know how much every decision and every experience can impact him for the rest of his life. Just turned 6 years old this month, we’re already beginning to think about ways that we can help him become the amazing man that I know that he can be. What immediately comes to mind? Boy Scouts of America.
So when we had the opportunity to see just what the Boy Scouts of America were doing these days with our little guys across the country, we couldn’t wait to check out the latest. It just so happened to be the weekend of the Cub Scouts Halloween Weekend at Camp La-No-Che, a perfect time for families to camp out for a weekend of fun and adventure. And we couldn’t wait to visit, because this spot holds special memories for the family. 26 years ago, my son’s uncle had camped at Camp La-No-Che as a Boy Scout too. Such a thrilling moment to follow in his uncle’s footsteps, we were ready to Build An Adventure with our first Boy Scouts Experience.
From swimming to hiking, water sports to rock climbing walls, building campfires to building lasting relationships, there’s so much going on in just 1 weekend with the Cub Scouts. Everything is set on a beautiful and vast campground, surrounded by family, friends and leaders and a blooming sense of discovery. You could see the twinkle of adventure in the boys’ eyes, even as they were just setting up their tents. You see the concentration on their faces when they shoot their first bow and arrow, build their first race car, catch their first fish.
Boys Scouts allows “boys to be boys” while teaching them life skills to take on the world. It’s amazing how often I hear my son’s uncles say how they were able to use a skill that they learned at Boy Scouts of America many years ago. I want that for my son too. I want a lifetime of discovery, happy memories and a skill set to take on the ultimate adventure of life.
I’m so glad that in today’s world, the Boy Scouts of America still provide the constancy of what boys need to learn and grow. I certainly cannot wait for my son to join Cub Scouts when he turns 7 years old!
