The Value of Badges
Scouts love their badges. They are a symbol of the scouts dedication to learn new skills, try new things and maybe be adventurous. Those brag vests look way cool when they are filled up. We as parents hold pride in seeing our son’s determination fill up that brag vest or add a new patch to their uniform. But what if those skills are forgotten as soon as that are learned? Those badges then lose their value and are just taking up space on the scouts uniform. It’s important to keep up with these skills so that our scouts can proudly display their achievements. Let’s remind our scouts about their hard work and let’s help them keep their newly learned skills sharp.
