    BOY SCOUTS

    How About an Adventure?

    Boy Scouts prove themselves in an environment that challenges their courage and tests their nerve. After they've been given the proper guidance from those with experience and know-how, they take their own lead, going places they've never gone, seeing things they've never seen, and diving into the rugged world of outdoor adventure, relying on teamwork and character to accomplish what everyone else thinks is impossible.Sound fun? If you're a boy age 11, or at least 10 and have completed the fifth grade, to 17 years old, the time for a real adventure is now.
