1981

The Seventh Edition, The Official Scoutmaster Handbook (1981), retained the Three Aims with some minor changes to the behavior to look for in a successful program:

Aims

Character

 

"He has some skills that enable him to enjoy life" was changed to "He has developed special skills or hobbies that absorb his energies and develop his competence and confidence." "Hard" was changed to "difficult" in "He is courageous in difficult situations." Dropped were: "He shows imagination and resourcefulness in solving problems," and "He shows what values he holds high by the decisions he makes."

Citizenship

 

"He understands the ethnic and social situation in his neighborhood" was changed to "He understands and respects the ethnic and social relationships of his community." "He resists the urging of his peers to experiment with smoking, drugs, and alcohol" was added here and repeated as an example of "Courage about what he believes" under Moral Fitness.

Fitness (Physical)

Two attributes were rewritten: "The boy has good health habits. He eats properly, exercises daily, and gets enough sleep," and "He keeps his weight within reasonable limits."

Fitness (Mental)

 

"Being able to give and receive information" was dropped.

THE METHODS

 

...We have considered the aims of Scouting and some of the evidence of achieving them. There are eight methods we use to accomplish these aims. They are not listed in order of importance because they are all of equal importance." The emphasis had been dropped and an eighth Method added:

bulletIdeals (was Scouting Ideals)
bulletPatrol Method (was Patrols)
bulletOutdoors (was Outdoor Program)
bulletAdvancement
bulletAdult Male Association
bulletUniform
bulletLeadership Training (was Leadership Development)
bulletPersonal Growth
