My experience with scouting started with my son in Cub Scouts. We always enjoyed the camp outs and the outdoors. When he crossed over and went on his first campout he was hooked. At the time I was just a supporting parent. He came back and said I should get more involved and would love it. Since that time, I have embraced the scouting experience as a leader and a father. There is no doubt the leadership, skills, and ideals scouting provides help build and define the character of our scouts.
