The Eight Methods of Scouting

1. Ideals 
Each Scout commits himself to the personal behavior guides and standards in the Scout 
motto, the slogan, the Oath and the Law 
2. Patrols 
Patrols give Scouts experience in teamwork, democracy and leadership. 
3. Outdoors 
Scouting emphasizes outdoors activities which foster an appreciation of nature 
and our ecology. Along the way, Scouts practice and learn new skills and develop 
confidence in their own abilities to cope with obstacles. Scouting is outing! 
4. Advancement 
The advancement program provides Scouts with a ladder of skills to climb at his own pace.  
On the way up, he has many opportunities to learn and to be recognized for his achievements.
5. Personal growth
All of the other methods contribute to the personal growth of a Scout through experience. 
The quest for growth is a method, too. 
6. Adult association
Adult leaders, male and female, provide an example to Scouts of the high character they 
should strive for in their personal growth. 
7. Leadership development 
Making boys get leadership experiences is one of the most valuable things Scouting does. 
8. Uniform 
The uniform reminds a Scout of who he is and what is expected of him. It identifies him 
as part of a patrol, troop, council and worldwide youth movement. He can take pride in 
being a Scout, and in the achievements shown on his uniform and sash. Even neighborhood 
gangs recognize the importance of wearing a uniform, their colors.
