New Scout Superhero Academy Flies Into Mcgimsey Scout Park
Scout youth new to the Alamo Area Council, Boy Scout program provided opportunity for SUPERHERO FUN
“We want every boy to see themselves as a superhero...that even as young as they are, they CAN make a difference. The Scouting program changes lives, and our goal is to help open young eyes to realize being a superhero is not a fantasy, but a reality through reaching out and serving others,” says Michael de los Santos, Scout Executive, Alamo Area Council, Boy Scouts of America
The Superhero Academy, focusing on newly enrolled boys in first through fifth grade, was created as a fun way to build confidence in the new Scouts and help motivate them towards achievement. The Alamo Area Council is expecting over 300 participants, including kids, parents and volunteers.
For many new parents and Scout volunteers, this is also their first introduction to a Scouting camp program. Volunteering for the Scouts can be an aid to good parenting; Scouting gives involved parents the confidence and resources to work alongside their boys in whatever activities may come their way.
