Program Essentials - Overview
The Program Essentials cover the core Scouting experience with Scouts completing the Program Essentials through attendance and active participation in the Scout Program.
The Program Essentials are a Scouts core experience in Scouting:
Introduction to Scouting (if not completed in an earlier Section)
Introduction to Section (completed at the start of each new Section during the transition phase)
Milestones (Participating, Assisting and Leading in activities based on the four Challenge Areas and reflecting on your adventures)
The Program Essentials have been designed to be completed through attendance and active participation. They are the regular Scouting program, and should not be treated as stand-alone items.
Self-reflection is a key part of the Program Essentials as Scouts stop to think about how they have developed along the journey.
