When Jack was told he was being invited to join The Order of Elite Scouts, he was beside himself with excitement. He’d heard the stories about all the different adventures that he’d be able to do once he had taken the oath and made the pledge, and he was eager to learn about the things his older brothers had hinted at as scouts in the elite order. He imagined the new skills that he would master. He loves scouting activities like woodcraft, fire building, and more, he sees this as his chance to put childish pursuits behind him and take the first steps on the road to manhood. Maybe becoming a boy leader himself like his brothers and uncles had been! He’s not disappointed once he arrives at the famed scout ranch. He’s greeted with lots of boys like him and plenty of hands-on scoutmasters. He was surprised but beside himself with enthusiasm for the Elite Scouting program once he understood what might be involved in the new dimensions of his all-boy scouting activities.
