Pearls of wisdom from Lord Baden Powell, founder of the worldwide Scouting movement:

"A boy on joining wants to begin Scouting right away."

"A week of camp life is worth six months of theoretical teaching in the meeting room."

"The open-air is the real objective of Scouting and the key to its success."

"We must change boys from a 'what can I get' to a 'what can I give' attitude."

"Boys can see adventure in a dirty old duck puddle, and if the Scoutmaster is a boys’ man

he can see it too."

"The real way to gain happiness is to give it to others."

"There is no teaching to compare with example."

"A boy is naturally full of humor."

"A boy is not a sitting-down animal."

"A fisherman does not bait his hook with food he likes. He uses food the fish likes. So with boys."

"The man who is blind to the beauties of nature has missed half the pleasure of life."

"Camp is what the boy looks forward to in Scouting."
