Excursions, field trips, and guest speakers provide some of the most exciting memories of our scouts. We realize that the people that make up our community is our greatest resource.
Do you have something fun and educational to share with our youngsters? Our boys enjoy visiting museums, business establishments, parks, and other attractions. Here are some examples:
- How Things Are Made – manufacturing plants such as aircraft, automotive, appliance, or electronic firms; chemical, paper, plastic, paint, furniture, or toy plants; and handicrafts or other small-craft industries.
- How Our Community Runs – power, water, and sewage plants; a gas company; police and fire stations; city hall; municipal buildings; the county jail; a telephone company; the post office; the Red Cross; hospitals; newspaper plants; and radio, television, and weather stations.
- How Our Community Is Fed – truck and dairy farms, flour mills, and bakeries; food processing, canning, or bottling plants; stockyards and meat or poultry packing houses; a fish hatchery; beverage, candy, and ice-cream companies; markets; and food distributors.
- Learning About Our Heritage – art galleries, museums, and memorials; celebrated old homes, monuments, and other historic sites; places of worship; civic centers; important local buildings; summer theaters and band concerts; and local historical celebrations.
