Boy Scouts from the Electric City spent the day showing off their skills hoping to recruit new members.
Scouts from Troop 1, 8 and 14 set up catapults and bridges in Lion’s Park Saturday for the annual Lewis and Clark District Scout Show.
The free event is an opportunity for the public to see what Scouts do and for Scouts to see the differences between troops. Boy Scouts showed off fire making, pioneering projects and building activities.
“It gives you a really good opportunity to learn a bunch of outdoor skills while, at the same time, learning to be a better person and serve your community,” Troop 14 Scout Tanner Dodge says.
“I assume leadership in Boy Scouts and it teaches me how to be confident in my decisions,” Troop 8 Scout Schuyler Moulton explains.
“We’re doing things to encourage boys to enroll in Scouts and get more active,” Troop 1 Scout Andrew says.
