Boy Scouts of America and Dutch Oven Monkey Bread

One of the largest scouting organizations in the United States is the Boy Scouts of America. It is also one of the largest youth organizations in the U.S. There are more than 2 million youth participants and another 1 million adult volunteers currently. The Boy Scouts of America was  founded in 1910. As part of the international Scout Movement there has been more than 110 million Americans that have participated since the beginning.

The goal of the Boy Scouts of America is to train youth in responsible citizenship, help develop character and self reliance. Outdoor activities, educational programs, and for older boy scouts career oriented programs through community organizations. For younger scouts values of trustworthiness, good citizenship and out door skills such as camping, aquatics, and hiking help strengthen the boys. The goals of boy scouts include:

Character Development
Spiritual Growth
Good Citizenship
Sportsmanship & Fitness
Family Understanding
Respectful Relationships
Personal Achievement
Friendly Service
Fun & Adventure
Preparation for Boy Scouts

The colors of the cub scouts is blue and gold. The blue stands for truth and spirituality, steadfast loyalty and the sky above. The gold stands for thee warm sunlight, good cheer and happiness. Today, February 8th is the birthday of the boy scouts of America and on February 10th, our local boy scouts will celebrate with a blue and gold banquet.

My grandson is in his first year of scouts. Boys ages 7 to 11 can begin scouts at the first level. Boys 11 to 18 is the second group. Young women having completed 8th grade through the age of 21 can become involved in boy scouts as well. Girls have the opportunity to join cub scouts in 2018 and in 2019 older girls can earn the rank of Eagle Scout.
