The Presbyterian Faith and Being a Scout in 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 Presbyterian 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 Presbyterian Churches and organizations can increase participation by Presbyterian families, and strengthen Presbyterian values through character education, and a sense of belonging.

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

We enable their families to share their faith and enrich their lives.

We assist our Presbyterian 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 Presbyterianism is service.  Our Scouts take part in service to the greater community.  Our Scouts 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.

Presbyterians oppose injustice and oppression.  Our Scouts contribute to the issues near to their hearts such as elimination of homelessness and the eradication of hunger and poverty.

Presbyterians consider it a mission to bring caring, education, and justice to the world.  Our Scouts are good friends and brother and sister to all other Scouts, bringing a sense of brotherhood to all they do.
