Why is EDGE important? EDGE is a better way of providing training which allows the participants to practice and gain self-confidence through hands-on training experiences. Essentially, it teaches you how to train other Scouts and Scouters. As of January 1st, 2010, EDGE is now required for all scouts working toward their Tenderfoot and Life ranks. This ranges from teaching a square knot as a Tenderfoot to teaching first aid, cooking, or camping as a Star Scout. .
EDGE We are going to perform a skit which will show EDGE in action. We need the patrol leader from each patrol to come up and help us out. Please watch this demonstration of EDGE in motion. .
EDGE An event in which scouts utilize a piece of highly honored and respected cloth which has been carefully designed with stars and stripes in the color red, white and blue. A minimum of three scouts are used to form this symbol into a single triangle after performing multiple folds with the corners representing the Executive, Judicial and Legislative branches of our government.
