Personal Growth is more of an Aim than a Method.  For the most part it is a result of the other "Methods."  

I have provided links below to those resources in Ideals that I think provide the most tangible or noticeable immediate Personal Growth.

At one time this was also the home of performance materials that can build self-confidence, but I have moved these to Outdoor/Stunts.  Be sure to see other related material such as Skits and Campfire Programs in the Outdoor Activities Area.  

For additional performance material, see also Seton's Birch Bark Roll.

Scout Spirit Scavenger Hunt

An Effective Scoutmaster Conference Worksheet For Scouts to Rank Their Own "Scout Spirit" for Advancement Requirements. Internalizes the Scout Law and Fosters Personal Growth Through the Process of Self-Reflection.   Responses Can Then be Selected For  Court of Honor Ceremonies Using Candles or Torches (See Introduction).


The Daily Good Turn

The Good Turn paradigm is a major part of the Personal Growth Method in Boy Scouting.  Boys grow as they participate in Community Service Projects and do Good Turns for others.  Probably no device is as successful in developing a basis for Personal Growth as the Daily Good Turn.



  The Order of Nature

An analytical outline of the book by Baden-Powell's father that inspired the mystical and spiritual side of Traditional Scouting called "The Religion of the Woods".
