Blog | Angelina's Scouting Story

At the start Scouting was nothing more than just a weekly club, but after I went to Kandersteg with Caludon District my eyes have been opened. I now realise I get so many opportunities I never would have got if I wasn’t in Scouting. I have made so many friendships, it’s the kind of atmosphere where you know when you make a friend you will stick by them forever.

I feel like I won’t know myself without scouting, it has just been such a big part of my life that I never realised. You are part of an exclusive club around the world, you can wear your Necker or uniform and people will know what you do and the adventures you go on.

Me personally, many memories have been made in scouting, like the little laughs and the big stories, they won’t leave you. And you grow up with them and you have stories to tell for the rest of your life. It’s great to grow up in scouting for the experiences you get that the next person in your class won’t, like an example would be half of my friends have never even slept in a tent or been on a hike, when that now is almost normal for me. You love things you never thought you would love, and try things you never thought you could do.
