4: Have FUN!

Every Scouting Leader and every parent will not only have the opportunity to live vicariously through the eyes of children, Scouting can provide unique opportinities to deepen relationships and experience new adventures. Unlike may things in a child’s life, Scouting tends to be that thind where they get to do things with their parents, enhancing the parent-child relationship well into adulthood.
