The Scout-Earth Caretaker Way teaches students to honor the ways of the old-time scouts. It is a physically and mentally demanding class. A great deal of the class is done at night using our senses to navigate. Some marital arts are taught in this class.
This is advanced class will allow students to utilize what they have learned in the Nature Awareness and Wilderness Skills classes. Students will need to have participated in at least one of these classes prior to attending the Scout-Earth Caretaker Way class.
To be a scout for our earth means to care for and protect our earth. This is a serious lifetime commitment, not something that only sounds good.
The Earth Caretaker Way is how you live your life every day. Your way of life reflects your love of our earth, and it starts with respecting yourself. This means keeping your body in shape, staying educated by reading, listening, researching, and asking questions. To be able to protect the earth we need to be able to physically be in it, as well as know what is happening on our planet.
The Scout Way is the intention of protection of nature and changing the world. The Scout-Earth Caretaker Way is one of action, not standing on the sidelines complaining, but finding solutions and making them happen. It is about being the person of change through right action.
Following this path, you will be living on purpose, and many of life’s opportunities will open up for you.
I’ll see you out there wherever the right action is.
