Personal growth comes through learning. The Scouting program uses a framework called SPICES to help youth develop into well-rounded individuals.

Through participation in Scouting Adventures, youth begin to understand how they depend on others, and how others depend on them. Scouting Adventures allow them to be part of a diverse group and develop cooperation and leadership skills.
Scouting Adventures provide many opportunities for youth to be responsible for the care and wellbeing of their bodies.
Through Scouting Adventures, youth have opportunities to develop in their ability to think, to plan, to innovate and to use information in an original way to adapt to new situations.
Scouting Adventures guide youth to take responsibility for themselves while still respecting the needs of others, helping them to create a lifelong personal values system.
Through Scouting Adventures, youth members are given opportunities to recognize and respect their own feelings and to learn to express them in a healthy manner while respecting the feelings of others. 
In the midst of Scouting Adventures, youth members have experiences in which they recognize that they are part of a larger spiritual reality and learn to respect the spiritual choices of others.
