The Baptist Faith and Being a Scout in the Scout Programs of Adventure Scouts USA PDF Print E-mail

The Scout Programs of Adventure Scouts USA encourage our Scouts to have a spiritual approach to life.  We provide the leadership to support the growth and character development of our co-ed membership and the greater community.  We accomplish this by providing contemporary skill-oriented activities that enrich individuals on a non-discriminatory basis.  We put principles of mutual respect into practice through FUN social activities, enhancing character as instilled by parents, personal achievement, learning by doing, and related educational programs promoting good character in our members and the greater community.

We enable our Scouts to understand and live their life by the six pillars of CHARACTER COUNTS!, and we expect our Scouts to be as good as their word.

Our teams may be sponsored by Baptist churches and organizations.  Our Team Sponsors are those who work for the benefit of youth.
Through a yearly renewable agreement, Team Sponsors use our Scout Programs as part of their effort to benefit the youth in their congregation and other youth in the community.  Team Sponsors may control program content, membership in their team, and religious responsibilities. 

Together, the Scout Programs of Adventure Scouts USA along with Baptist Churches and organizations can increase participation by Baptist families, and strengthen Baptist values through character education, and a sense of belonging.

We welcome Baptist Scouts and members and enable fulfillment of their religious responsibilities.

We assist our Baptist Scouts and members to integrate their faith into everyday life and help families to share their faith on their child’s journey of faith.
An important concept in the Baptist religion is that service and being a good person are an important part of daily life, not only during worship. Our Scouts take part in service to the greater community.  Our Scouts also regularly adopt comprehensive projects of service which they choose, organize, and lead.  Our highest award, the Challenger Award, is a comprehensive undertaking which results in a substantial change for their communities, and must be sustainable without them.
Baptists believe the power of love and caring can transform hate and benefits communities.  Similarly, we encourage our Scouts to form healthy relationships with family and friends.

Our Scout Programs promote strong families and strengthen family values.

Baptists believe in embracing others in the world as their neighbor, and we instill compassion in our Scouts for the circumstances of others.
