  • Social Development
    Scouts will develop a sense of social responsibility and loyalty by creating and upholding a troop pledge/creed. In addition, Scouts will be able to make new friends from another country and exchange each other's culture. This will teach them to be open to differing opinions, social classes and ways of life.
  • Intellectual Development
    Scouts will be able to expand their field of knowledge regarding the creation of a pledge/creed. Scouts will also be able to analyse and understand the values behind that their pledge/creed entails. In addition, Scouts will learn how to host a mini-patrol exchange with Scouts from overseas.
  • Character Development
    Scouts will be able to develop a critical awareness of themselves their patrol and their troop by creating the troop pledge/creed. In addition, Scouts will learn to be open to exchanging their culture with another Scout from overseas as well as develop the self-confidence to host a patrol exchange with Scouts from overseas.
