Scout Philosophy & Mentoring

August 26-31, 2018 Next Availability

What we teach for Advanced Arts of the Scout is never written, but it requires a pledge of morals and service to the world before learning. Participants can expect to participate in Scout Missions with the introductory scouts, but will be expected to take their skills to a new level. They will move slower; act with more forethought; and execute complex plans to achieve their objectives. Advanced Scouts will place greater emphasis on selfless service; intuition; mind over matter; and acting as an agent of change.

Registration for 2018 begins in November 2017

Camp Goals & Skills Covered:

The primary goal of Advanced Arts of the Scout is to integrate the scout code of morals so deeply that it transcends the participant’s life. A point where scout ideals are no longer abstract concepts and, instead, ways of being. In order to do so, you may take a proficiency challenge to demonstrate that you have become accomplished in the following morals:

  • Appreciation;
  • Unity;
  • Intelligences;
  • Joyful Interest;
  • Sensitive Honesty;
  • Love & Peace;
  • Will to Serve;
  • Humble Respect.

Skills include but are not limited to:

  • Establish Secret Scout Camp;
  • Boobie Traps;
  • Smokeless Fires;
  • Meditative exercises for body control – overcoming cold, fear, and pain;
  • Navigate without modern devices;
  • Log Balancing & Jousting;
  • Build invisible scout pits.
