I’ve asked this question a lot! What do you need to have to be a great scout leader? Here are ten of my favorite answers from a variety of wonderful BPSA leaders!
A Sense of Humor!
A good rain coat!
A sense of fun!
Sturdy, waterproof boots!
A desire to learn and grow along side your scouts!
A love of the outdoors!
A desire to give your time and help the next generation learn to scout.
A uniform and a whistle, that way they know who is supposed to be in charge.
A heart for adventure.
A willingness to try, even if you don’t know what you are doing!
Whatever you have going for you, and why ever you became a leader, I hope some of these speak to you. I also hope you do all own a good rain coat. You’ll need it!
