Scouting Program Archives: Positive Attitude

Positive Attitude
Positive Attitude is being cheerful and setting our minds to look for and find the best in all situations.

The January Pack Meeting Tips from BSA remind us “As boys participate in various activities, they will come to understand that all things change and they can make a difference in how that change affects their lives. A positive
outlook will provide hope and excitement for their future.”
