The Path of the Scout is the path of awareness and a deeper connection to the mind. Scouts are the eyes and the ears of a team, which means not only the ability to observe, but often the ability to remain undetected or blend into whatever the baseline is, in both urban and wilderness environments.
Scouts learn basic and advanced land navigation techniques (map and compass orienteering), stealth and long-distance movement over varied terrains, long-range and strategic security, awareness and stealth, remote cache sites, hidden shelters and fire, advanced camouflage and reconnaissance. Scouts also are briefly introduced to an urban environment from the perspective of having to move through an urban area (using green belts, parks and drainage systems, etc.). In this regard they are introduced to the concepts of urban caches, urban (vehicular) surveillance and urban baselines.
