Why reinvent the wheel? Sometimes what we are looking for to enrich our family’s/child’s education already exists. Check out these local clubs and what they have to offer. You may be surprised by what you find! Please tell me if you know of another club I should list.
Outdoor Club by Tierra Wild: Non-profit local company that uses the Prescott and Northern Arizona outdoors as its classroom for emphasizing leadership development, confidence development, and environmental awareness.
We have 3 local clubs: Prescott, Chino Valley, Dewey-Humboldt.
Visit the website to locate a Cub or Boy Scout troop close to your home. Some Scout troops are affiliated with a church and some are community-based so you can find the right troop for your son. Scouting has been around for generations. It’s a great club for any boy to be a part of–and their parents (right now, I’m a Wolf/Bear Den Leader of a Cub Scout pack). Scouting encourages responsibility, honor, duty, learning, brotherhood, service, citizenship. Scouting instills these timeless values through a wide variety of activities such as sports, drama, wood projects, knot tying, camping, hiking, art, science projects, writing, and first aid/emergency preparedness. The Scouting program encourages boys to pass things off and earn advancement rankings. In this way, Scouting is a great club that encourages a well-rounded educational opportunity for boys.
