Report to the Nation: ScoutStrong
We’ve known all along that Scouts possess a special kind of strength. This week, a delegation of youth from across the country talked to Congress about the ScoutStrong movement.
At the BSA’s Report to the Nation, an event at which representatives traveled to Washington, D.C., to report on the BSA’s greatest highlights of 2011, the youth told members of Congress how increasing rates of obesity, unhealthy eating habits and physical inactivity are creating health problems for America’s young people.
Boy Scouts are trying to turn the tide with the ScoutStrong program, which focuses on three areas: activity, awareness and nutrition.
Scouts can earn the Presidential Active Lifestyle Award by achieving a certain level of physical fitness.
