What We Do
The Boy Scouts of America, Troop 292, works with young men to teach them what it means to live honorably and live by the Scout Law and the Scout Oath. The Scout Program instills these core values to be used by the scout in his home, as a young man, in the work place, as a husband, father, and in the provision of Service to his community and his church.
How We Do It
By participating in scouting activities such as camping, canoeing, cooking, hiking, backpacking, swimming with the Manatees, mountain climbing, sailing, and shotgun, rifle, black powder, and archery are fun activities that are used to teach core values. By participating in these activities, scouts learn how to protect the environment for future generations, recognize and appreciate wildlife, how to be safe and enjoy the sport of firearm shooting, how to work together as a team, and how to be trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent. These activities help scouts develop leadership skills and teach them to be honorable in all that they do. We also require scouts to be active in providing “service to others” which is a core value in scouting.
Why We Do It
Our homes, community, nation, and the world will be a better place for our children and their children because of these core values that are taught through the scouting/outdoor program and demonstrated in everyday life by our scouts.
How Can You Help?
The scouting program and the progress a scout makes are directly related to the support provided by the family. All activities such as soccer, football, band, academic studies, and scouting need family support for success. Making sure your scout is at the meetings, participating in campouts, and working on advancements and merit badges at home, will ensure your scouts success in learning the core values of scouting.
