Doing service projects together is one way that Scouts keep their promise “to help other people.” While a Scout should do their best to help other people every day, a group service project is a bigger way to help people. While they’re giving service, they’re learning to work together with others to do something that’s good for their community.
Service projects may help the natural world, the community, or the chartered organization. Below are pictures from some of the service projects our Troops and Pack have participated in, though there are a lot more service projects and activities that are not included below.
