The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation's largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness. For nearly a century, the BSA has helped build the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The Boy Scouts of America believes ó and through nearly a century of experience, knows ó that helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society.
SCOUTING FOR ADVENTURE
Coinciding with the upcoming 100th anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), this July marks the return of all-new episodes of the hit show, Scouting for Adventure; an original series based on the BSA and their flagship magazine, Boys' Life. This high-adventure show targets young outdoorsmen, teaching wilderness skills with an emphasis on safety and team-building.
In the show's second year, Scouting for Adventure promises to continue the tradition of top-notch television production, shot in high-definition that motivates, educates and inspires both young and young-at-heart. Each action-packed episode features short segments that pertain to all aspects of Scouting such as merit badges, oaths, safety, gear and knots. Whether it's learning how to properly tie a square knot at Creighton Island, Georgia or emphasizing the importance of beach conservation (utilizing the BSA's Leave No Trace program) in Catalina Island, California, each episode of Scouting for Adventure offers practical advice for all past, present and future scouts.
