All About Scouts by Chelsie Rimel
Have you completed your scouting requirement yet? If not, hurry on down to the Dorito church, pronto. Yes, I was always one of those brothers who waited until the very last minute to fulfill my scouting requirement, but this semester I took a different approach and I’m glad that I did. Why do you ask? Because I’ve found an all new ideology about scout meetings and advice for you to enjoy scouts as much as I do. I have never been the outdoorsy, wilderness type of gal. I’ve never been camping or to a summer camp, so the pledge retreat was about as real as it gets for me. What is nice about scouts is that you learn beneficial information without getting bit by bugs or dealing with an unruly tent. If you’re like me, pioneering or knot tying isn’t a subject I deal with frequently. However, I love learning new things. Scouts is away to learn something new, something you never thought you would ever learn. Last week, we learned about the railroad. I think I was more intrigued in the lesson than the scouts were! Between the heavy workload of studying for exams and writing papers (what seems like) every other day, it’s nice to take a break and learn something different. My favorite experience at scouts so far was probably one of the first aid nights. The scouts were learning how to properly make splints and slings. I was chosen to be the injured person. Needless to say it was an interesting situation but also a fun learning experience. I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so much at a service event! So instead of looking at scout meetings as just another requirement to fulfill, look at them as a way to learn something new.
