Kindle Community Challenge Profile: The Boy Scouts

Boy Scouts

Scouting is so much more than learning to survive in the wilds of New Jersey. It’s more than pledging an oath or experience the camaraderie of motivated peers. The Boy Scouts are preparing a generation of young leaders to lives by ageless values and an unimpeachable standard personal conduct.

The people of Kindle have always been strong supporters of area scouting. The Baysea District Southern New Jersey Council of the Boy Scouts of America provides the Scouting experience to over 500 active registered youth in 11 Cub Scout Packs, 13 Boy Scout Troops, 2 Venturing Crews, and 6 Explorer Posts in Cape May County.

In 2011, Bill Kindle, was honored with the troop’s “Distinguished Citizen of the Year” by the New Jersey State Legislature. This year the Kindle “Community Challenge” looks to all great organizations like the BSA, that are building communities of character.
