This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Boy Scouts of America for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
This is Scout Master Gib Kohr who has been in the Boy Scouts of America for 75 years. He is my great uncle! Currently he is the Leader of the Order of The Arrow which is a national camping society, a division of Boy Scouts of America. This group is based on cheerful service. Previously, my uncle was a scout leader of troop #45 in the Palmetto Council or South Carolina. Gib had brought four troops to Filmont, New Mexico on camping trips. Gib Kohr started his journey into scouting as a tenderfoot in Kalamazoo, Michigan in 1933!
Most if the men in my family have been scouts because it is a great outlet for young boys to go camping, learn, explore and service the community. My brother, Bobby, is also an Eagle Scout and my two young boys will become tenderfoots when they are of age. Be A Scout and let your kids experience the balance of technology interaction, socail activites and outdoor exploration that the Boy Scouts of America has to offer.
Trustworthy. Loyal. Helpful. Friendly. Courteous. Kind. Obedient. Cheerful. Thrifty. Brave. Clean. Reverent.
These are more than just words. These are values that the Boy Scouts of America teaches and good morals for anyone to live by. As a mother, these are values I want to instill in my boys at a very young age. In addition to the values and morals, the Boy Scouts of America encourages boys to social interact in a positive manner out of the classroom romping around outdoors away from the computer games and television.
Healthy living is also a focus for the Boy Scouts of America which is important for young men to learn in this age of Super Size and Value Meals. Scouting offers invigorating activities to help their scouts stay in shape while educating them on how to live a healthy lifestyle.
I want what is best for my children. Don’t you? Be A Scout
