Sit. Rep. #145: Fellowship, Friendship, and Brotherhood

1- Scouting is a giant Brotherhood around the globe with ~38 Million Scouts.  Scouting is in 216 Countries (per Scouting facts from around the world).  Malta was the first overseas country outside of the UK to have Scouting 1908.

2- Last weekend I had a chance to go “out-of-council” for additional Scout training.  Blue Ridge Mt. Council hosted the training at Camp Powhatan, Hiwassee, Virginia. I was immediately welcomed, given a brief tour, and felt like a long-lost family member within a few short moments.  Thank you to B.R.M.C., the Camp Powhatan staff, and volunteers.

3- Have you ever gotten stuck on a project or subject?  In Scouts, there is a multitude of resources.  An abundance of people that are willing to help.  Ask for help.  I do not know all the answers.  But, I bet I know someone who can get you an answer.

4- The Values of Scouting, the Ethos of Scouting are stated in the Scout Law & Oath.

  • Integrity – We act with integrity; we are honest, trustworthy, and loyal.
  • Respect – We have self-respect and respect for others.
  • Care – We support others and take care of the world in which we live.
  • Belief – We explore our faiths, beliefs, and attitudes.
  • Co-operation – We make a positive difference; we co-operate with others and make friends.
  • (Thanks
