Service is a cornerstone of Scouting, and it is evident throughout Roanoke Rapids and Halifax County. All of our local Cub Scout Packs and Boy Scout Troops participate in local service projects.

Leadership is another foundation of the Scouting movement. Whether an older Scout is teaching younger boys or Scouts working together to achieve more, the Boy Scouts help our youth reach their potential by giving them the tools and opportunity to succeed.

Of course, the Boy Scouts go camping. Each year, our older boys go on con campouts monthly, preparing for the highlight of the Boy Scouting year: week-long Summer Camp. Our younger boys get in the action, too. Local campouts at Medoc Mountain and countless other locations prepare our Cub Scouts for a bright future in Scouting.

In response to the changing world, young women can now participate in Boy Scouting in the "non-traditional" youth program, Exploring. This program gives our youth experience in potential career fields, providing an advantage as they plan to enter the workforce after graduating. Currently, Explorer Posts are up and running at Gaston EMS and the Halifax Sheriff's Department, with plans to start fire and health posts in the near future.

Whether it is celebrating the traditions of the past or looking forward to the future, the Boy Scouts of America give our youth the tools to excel in a changing world.
