(Den leader uses as introduction to theme) Many years ago, the part of the world that we now know as Alaska was a vast frontier. There were very few people there - only the Eskimos. As Americans became restless with the everyday life, a few brave men began to explore the unknown and unpopulated areas of the U.S. -eventually
Alaska! Here they found a beautiful land with bountiful resources. There were huge herds of caribou, deer, bears, fish and other wildlife that astounded these brave men.
As the years passed, more and more resources were discovered gold, lumber, fishing industry and oil. If you think of your life like an explorer would, you too are discovering the countless wonders of a new frontier.
Scouting can help you along the way - it opens your eyes to some new things that maybe you hadn't thought of before. Now let us go together and explore the world of Scouting.
