The basic premise of Scouting for youth with special needs is that every boy wants to participate fully and be respected like every other member of the unit. While there are, by necessity, units exclusively composed of Scouts with disabilities, experience has shown that Scouting usually succeeds best when every boy is part of regular pack, troop or crew.

The Michigan Crossroads Council through a partnership with the University of Michigan-Flint is able to provide a series of PowerPoint presentations describing and providing information on various disabilities.

The Scout Oath

On my honor, I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.
