Boy Scouts of Laredo to host recruitment event this weekend

LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - If your son or daughter enjoys the great outdoors, a local organization is looking for new and exciting members to join its club.

The Boy Scouts of America is a national movement that aims to support youngsters in their physical, mental and spiritual development that can help them learn self-discipline and character.

The Laredo Boy Scouts is looking to host a recruitment event to offer kids of all ages the chance to learn some new and exciting skills while also having fun.

The scouts will provide potential recruits with a Knots to know activity where they will get hands on experience of all the different types of knots.
The Boy Scouts organization does a lot for our youth by teaching them about the great outdoors as well as how to be a very responsible and independent young adult.
Kids who join will get to participate in field trips out of town, camping trips, fundraisers and nature hikes.
Organizers say it’s not all fun and games; before the kids have fun they must also do their part by cleaning up the area.
Boy Scout representatives will be at Mall Del Norte in front of Macy’s from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
