Boy Scouts of America and Girl Scouts of the USA have helped to shape and strengthen the character of millions of America’s youth over these organizations’ combined 212-year history. Their far-reaching programs have helped to develop more conscientious and responsible leaders in our communities and a more productive American society.
Over their lives, scouts will give much of themselves for the betterment of others, so Renfro Productions and Management will honor scouts and scouting tradition with their own special Scout Day at the 58th annual Ford Indianapolis Boat, Sport and Travel Show – the largest show of its kind in the nation – this President’s Day, Monday, February 20th.
A variety of exclusive informational seminars of special interest to scouts will be offered on Scout Day, covering such topics as canoe and kayak safety, dog training, fishing, boating safety and more. Additional featured seminars include Canoeing the Boundary Waters with Rob Kesselring, Bear Safety by JL Bruins and Brody the Kodiak bear, Survival in the Woods by Dave Canterbury of Discovery’s hit show Dual Survival, Fly Fishing with Flymasters of Indianapolis, and a special presentation on Indiana Native Wildlife by Indy Parks! These unique, entertaining and informative seminars are geared for scouts, but are sure to be appreciated by all who attend.
“Scouting is a great American tradition”, says Ford Indianapolis Boat, Sport and Travel Show organizer, Kevin Renfro. “And we’re thrilled to be able to offer these opportunities to our state and local scouting communities”, he continues.
In addition to special discounted admission available on advance ticket purchases, each scout who attends Scout Day in uniform will receive a free climb on the show’s giant rock wall and free fishing at the trout pond.
