Troop 98 Gahanna
Some kids avoid obstacles. Scouts overcome them. Scouts BSA is a year-round program for youth in fifth grade through high school that provides fun, adventure, learning, challenge, and responsibility to help them become the best version of themselves. In Scouts BSA, our Scouts go places, test themselves, and have one-of-a-kind adventures that can’t be found anywhere else. The Scouts are responsible for the activities of the troop. Adults train youth members to assume leadership roles, and with those skills, the Scouts plan the program and carry it out. Through planning and organizing their activities, they have fun, develop teamwork and learn to lead.
There’s no one way to explore the world.
My way is to push myself, and never take the easy road.
I prefer a road that winds through forests and goes up mountains.
Because I’ve always been an adventurer at heart.
That’s why I can’t wait to be a Scout.
Because Scouting will guide me to great things.
It won’t just teach me to navigate the woods with confidence,
but it will give me the confidence I need to navigate the world.
I’ll enter the Scouts as the best version of myself today
and will grow into the best version of myself for my future.
Scouting will show me how to use bravery, trustworthiness,
loyalty and kindness to become a person I’m proud to be.
Because there’s no one way to explore the world.
And my way is in the Scouts.
