This thread is dedicated only about the Survival Forum aspect of being within the Boy Scouts of America, as well as the Scouting movement in that Boy
Scouts is an international organization. It is in no way about conspiracies, nor conspiracy related in regards to Scouting. I am stating this because
I am a member of the Boy Scouts of America, and I am attempting to bring some survival aspects to ATS in regards to Scouting for anyone who cares to
learn a thing or two in the aspect of being prepared.
All of this having been said, I have outlined specifically what the thread is about, so there is no misunderstanding whatsoever. I felt it necessary
to make these statements as I have seen negative and attacking threads here about connections within Scouting here on ATS as well as other sources,
and while I feel it is important that you have your own thoughts on things, this one specific area is only about the survival aspect.
Boy Scouts of America
I have been with the Boy Scouts of America as an adult leader now for just over two years, as well as having been a Webelos at age 10, and then later
a Police Explorer, a branch of the Boy Scouts of America. I absolutely love the survival aspect of this organization and the leadership skills in that
they teach the youth to "Be Prepared" in all things survival as well as later on in life. I am currently a Unit Commissioner within the local
District I am in, as well as Friends of Scouting Committee Chair, and Finance Committee Chair, and a general guy to go to within Scouts as someone who
has knowlegde and can give advice when it's needed.
You can go here to see the basic outline of what I do within Scouts :

After having started this thread, I am opening it up for survival discussion, and questions for anyone who might want to know more about this
organization in the survival aspect as well as how to join, or any other question, not conspiracy related in regards to the Boy Scouts of America, as
well as the international branches, and all other "Scout" related organizations as well. All organizations that teach similar survival aspects for
youth as well as life skills are of course well so that no one is secluded.
Please understand, I do know this thread is within a conspiracy theory website, but this is for what I've outlined only. As well as this, I've
intentionally left out the District name I am in. I've seen enough hate on this website alone just for even talking about Scouts and any
organizational affiliations, so I am keeping this as neutral as possible.
