Posted on Updated on

Long-Time BSA staffer Scott Teare of Michigan took over the General Secretary of the World Organization of the Scouting Movement in January 2013. In this video  he talks about the Scouting movement’s effort to convert children from consumers of play, such as video games or Little League players in an establish league run by adults, to initiators of play. The kids become responsible for creating their own fun.  In the end they learn leadership and fellowship.
