The Boy Scouts of America prepares young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling the values of the Scout Oath and Law. Through outdoor experiences, they provide the most relevant and rigorous character and leadership program available today. Scouting develops leaders that are good problem solvers, community-minded, physically fit, and prepared for success in life. Two of the many programs offered through the Narragansett Council include Project C.O.P.E. (Challenging Outdoor Personal Experience), a “low ropes course” that includes a series of physical, mental, and emotional challenges, and Adventure Day Camp, a week-long program including activities such as archery, boating, swimming, crafts, outdoor cooking, fire-building, nature appreciation, and daily STEM projects.
