How Scouting Has Made Me A Better Person

  Scouting has made me a better person because it has taught me life skills that I can use to save lives and it’s taught me how to work in groups.

  Scouting has taught me very useful life skills such as using power tools, tying and applying knots (such as in the Klondike Derby.) And it has taught me to get over the “deep end” in the water and to swim!

  Scouting has also taught me how to work in groups and own your leadership (such as in the Klondike Derby when I was the leader of the rescue and 4-man-ski.) It’s also taught me when I should give suggestions for other people’s ideas and when to sit back and listen. (Which took me a long time because it was hard for me to think that there’s always more than my solution for every problem.)

  So you see that scouting so far and will continue to make a huge impact on my life, and will continue to make me a better person. And it’s all thanks to my leaders at Quail Hill camp, my mom and dad, and most importantly my den leaders, Mr. and Mrs. Dare.
