I Got Involved in Scouting Because:
My mother signed me up after my father passed away so I could get some more testosterone in my life.
Scouting Prepared Me For Life By:
Through Scouting, and particularly working on camp staph, I’ve gained valuable leadership and communication skills that I feel will benefit me for years to come.
My Most Memorable Scouting Moment:
Hiking along a ridge at Philmont, and being able to see 360 degrees of beautiful landscape around me.
