Boy Scouts teaches survival skills

I have been in Boy Scouts for two years now, going on three years. I enjoy scouts. We do a lot of planning at the meetings. That might sound boring, but it's worth it in the end. The camp outs are the best parts of scouts; no parents, brothers, sisters and none of the city there with you. Just the wilderness and the great wild life of raccoons and mosquitoes. When we started the troop there were six of us. Now there are about 12 of us - over the course of three years the troop size has doubled - that is a good thing. So if most people think that Scouts is for wimps, it is just the opposite. Scouts teaches young men how to survive in the dwindling wilderness. And that's what I think of Scouts.
