Ten Essentials of Scoutmastership
By William “Green Bar Bill” Hillcourt

A belief in boys that will make you want to invest yourself and your time on their behalf.
A zeal focused upon one point—the boy’s happiness through his formative years—”A happy boy is a good boy, a good boy is a good citizen.”
An immense faith in Scouting as the program that will best serve to mold our youth into fine men.
A realization that to the boys Scouting is a game—to you, a game with a purpose: Character building and Citizenship training.
A knowledge that to your boys you are Scouting. “What you are speaks so loud that I cannot hear what you say!”
A steadfastness of purpose to carry out a planned program with energy and perseverance, patience and good humor.
A willingness to submerge yourself and make boy leaders lead and grow through an effective application of the Patrol Method.
A desire to advance in Scoutmastership by making use of training offered and material available on the subject.
A readiness to work hand in hand with home, church, sponsoring institution, school, Local Council, National Council for the good of the individual boy and the community as a whole.
A love of the outdoors in all its phases and a vision of the hand that created it.
Have a Great Scouting Day!
