What is Scouting, and what can it do for you? The Scout movement is an international youth organization that welcomes members from all social backgrounds, faiths and cultures, Its aim is to help young people to develop mentally, physically and spiritually. This is achieved through an attractive training program designed to enable the young people to work with others, gain self-confidence and take a constructive place in the community.
In Scouting we use the term backwoods to describe somewhere away from towns or habitation. Its more often used to describe an area of wild country usually within the woodlands of Canada or America, but could equally be used for areas like the Veldt or plains, the Australian bush or the vast forests of Europe.
What's pioneering? When Lieut.-General R. S. S. Baden-Powell wrote Scouting for Boys, under the heading Camp Life chapter 4, he started by explaining that Pioneering is Knot-tying-Hut making Trees-Bridging-Measurements-Handicrafts.
