Scouting is a values-based program with its own code of conduct. The
Scout Oath and Law help instill the values of good conduct, respect for
others, and honesty. Scouts learn skills that will last a lifetime,
including basic outdoor skills, first aid, citizenship skills, leadership
skills, and how to get along with others. For almost a century, Scouting
has instilled in young men the values and knowledge that they will need
to become leaders in their communities and country.
