I must admit when I initially thought about my son, Taj, becoming a Boy Scout, I thought it would be a wonderful way for him to bond with his dad and create memories. That’s what Boy Scouts is about, right? Boy, was I wrong! Our Troop welcomed me with open arms and encouraged me to participate with my husband and son. Before I knew it, I was learning how to build campfires, tie knots, and more. We were Scouting together as a family and with our new family- Boy Scouts of America. Taj loves Scouting! He says Scouting provides a brotherhood. Boys teach and learn from one another, look out for each other, and encourage each other to be their best. BSA is a family we cherish.
