Boy Scouts host Learning for Life

SALISBURY — The Central North Carolina Council of the Boy Scouts of America hosted its annual Learning for Life Field Days on April 6 and Wednesday. More than 1,100 students, teachers, volunteers and parents participated.
The council has offered this event to its communities for 20 years.
Learning For Life is the curriculum-based in-school program offered by Scouting that encourages basic life skills and values such as truth, loyalty, trust and team work. There are well-researched and prepared lesson plans for each grade level and group from first grade through high school. Classroom teachers provide the instruction.
Highlights of each year are the activities of the Learning for Life Days that support the program concept. Activities include archery, BBs, fishing, gold panning, handicraft, horseback riding, map and compass, outdoor cooking and Scout skills And although the line of patient people is always long, there is also great excitement in preparing for a ride in the Rowan Rescue Squad emergency airboat.
More than 80 volunteer staff members help to make each of these days special for the students. The intent for their efforts is realized when a young person finds out that he or she has done something not accomplished previously while enjoying new fellowship, caring adults and the outdoor beauty of Camp John J. Barnhardt.
The Central North Carolina Council includes Scouting in Anson, Cabarrus, Montgomery, Richmond, Rowan, Stanly and Union counties. For more information, log on to www.centralnccouncilbsa.com or www.rowandistrictbsa.com or call 704-982-0141, extension 222.
