Sikh American Eagle Scout presenting at Leaders meeting to Inspire Adventure

Karanveer Singh senior in high school and an Eagle Scout was invited by the Garden State Council to speak to the Cub Scout and Boy Scout Adult Leaders to inspire the spirit of adventure into other scouts on February 13, 2016.

Adult Leaders are always looking for innovative ways to inspire and keep scouts energized within Scouting. The ‘Inspire Adventure Summit’, Saturday, Feb. 13, 2016 – 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m., was held at the Rowan Scout Training and Support Center, 695 Rancocas Rd., Westhampton, New jersey.

One of the topics covered was ‘Meetings that Aren’t Meetings (alternatives and more fun), Staying in Scouting after Age 15’. S. Karanveer Singh spoke of ways to engage older scouts from ages 15 and above through creative and innovative ways. He suggested engaging the scouts to enable them to run their own meetings without the interference of the adults. Also having camping trips more often, again organized, planned and completely led by the scouts. He strongly suggested the 50 mile back packing trips as they are some of the most exciting and memorable outings which every boy scout should experience at least once.  This has kept his friends and him coming back for more by staying in Scouting.

The approximately thirty adult leaders were very appreciative of the insights and suggestions given by the young Eagle Scout.
