Ada, MN — The Northern Lights Council of the Boy Scouts of America is busy this fall looking for new recruits to join them in their learning, exploration, and leadership activities. The Boy Scouts of America has provided youth development through camping, fishing, building, and service-related activities since 1910. Thomas Huether, Field Director for the Northern Lights Council, says they are hosting a number of recruitment events in the coming weeks to get more kids and families involved in the scouts.

A big focus for the Boy Scouts of America is character development, leadership development, and fitness. Huether says scouts typically spend a lot of their time outdoors, learning new skills, and experiencing new things.

And despite the name, the Boy Scouts of America isn’t just for boys. Huether says they welcome girls as well as entire families to get involved.

The Northern Sky District of the Northern Lights Council, which includes Clay, Becker, Mahnomen and Norman County in Minnesota, and Traill and Cass in North Dakota, will be on hand at this Saturday’s Fun in the Flatlands at the Norman County Fairgrounds for families to get more information and sign up. You can also go online to www.nlcbsa.org for more information.
