The phrase, “traditional scouting” refers to a back-to-basics scouting movement based on the original principles and methods devised by scouting’s founder, Robert Baden-Powell. The aim of our association is, as stated by B-P himself, to promote good citizenship and physical, mental development and training in habits of observation, discipline, self-reliance, loyalty, and useful life skills. We meet outdoors, and service to the community is one of our core tenets. Our badgework focuses on proficiency in outdoor skills, citizenship, and self-reliance. We strive to preserve B-P’s original methods and educational philosophy in our program as much as possible, while modernizing language to keep up with societal evolution and staying up-to-date with best practice and safety in outdoor education.
