Oliver is the one of the quietest boys in his troop. At a glance, one might even think he is shy. He is obedient and hard working, but he tends to keep to himself and finds solace in nature. That’s what drew him to the scouts to begin with. It was a chance to be outdoors, discovering things, building shelter, and living with respect for the land. And he likes spending time with his fellow scouts because they are all doing those things together… but he wants to do more. It’s the “more” that has Oliver tongue-tied sometimes. He’s been attracted to his scoutmasters and some of the other boys ever since he can remember, and the playful behavior he witnesses between other guys means something very different to him. Oliver hopes that pledging the Elite Scouts will be an opportunity to grow to be like the men he has admired all his life: strong, brave, and reliable. And hopefully he’ll be able to grow closer to them as well on his journey toward manhood.
