In the preface to the 1908 edition of Scouting for Boys, Lord Baden-Powell shared his vision for Scouting when he wrote:
"Let us, therefore, in training our Scouts, keep the higher aims in the forefront, not let ourselves get too absorbed in the steps. Don't let the technical outweigh the moral...Field efficiency, backwoodsmanship, camping, hiking, good turns, jamboree comradeship are all means, not the end. The end is character with a purpose. And that purpose, that the next generation may be sane in an insane world, and develop the higher realization of service, active "service of love, and duty to God and neighbor.
