3 Aims of Scouting
Boy Scouting works towards 3 aims:
One is growth in moral strength and character.
Character can be defined as the collection of core values by an individual that leads to moral commitment and action,
and encompasses a boy’s personal qualities, values, and outlook.
A second aim is citizenship.
Used broadly, citizenship means the boy’s relationship to others.
He comes to learn of his obligations to other people, to the society he lives in,
and to the government that presides over that society.
A third aim of Boy Scouting is physical, mental and emotional fitness.
Fitness includes the body (well-tuned and healthy),
the mind (able to think and solve problems),
and the emotions (self-control, courage, and self-respect).
