"Life is an adventure. Overcoming obstacles and succeeding are all a part of it. I did this hike with campers during the summer and many of them felt they couldn't get through it. The reward was this amazing view on the top of The Timp and this is an adventure we will never forget." - Sloan P from Valley Cottage, NY. #WeOwnAdventure #BeAScout .

Today is #AmericanEagleDay 🇺🇸🦅. Once an Eagle, ALWAYS an Eagle. If you're an #EagleScout, if you know one, or if you're working to be one, tag them the comments below to show them some love!

American Eagle Day (June 20) is a special day to commemorate the anniversary of the Bald Eagle’s selection as our National Symbol, to celebrate its physical recovery to America’s skies, and to observe the American values, ideals and attributes for which it stands.

Isn't the whole point of being in a boat NOT to get wet? 😂 Seriously though, way to power through and not let a little rain get you down. Nothing like a little challenge to make your adventure even more memorable.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Have a great dad joke for us? Share it in the comments and tag your dad to make him laugh too!

"Adventure is going where most won't. It's the desire to climb the tallest mountain and, once you're there, to go over that mountain and see what there is to see! It's hardships endured by yourself as well as others. It's going out of your comfort zone to better yourself. Most importantly, adventure is just as essential as oxygen." - Sam D from Laurel, IA. #WeOwnAdventure #BeAScout ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
