Boston Minuteman and Yankee Clipper Councils have officially merged to become the Spirit of Adventure Council!
It is with gratitude to the many leaders and parents who participated in the merger process over these past six months or so, and with great pride that we would like to announce the official merger of the Boston Minuteman and Yankee Clipper Councils. Our new Spirit of Adventure Council marks a significant change in the way Scouting is going to grow in the next 100+ years. With our focus on finding ways to help Scouting thrive, this process has been extremely successful. In the words of Lord Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of the Boy Scouts:
If you make listening and observation your occupation you will gain much more than you can by talk.
This has been our first priority throughout the merger process, and will continue to be the way we operate in the future. Council mergers are typically marked by arguments and hurt feelings, but this merger has been and amazing and wonderful experience that we should all be proud of. This is a really good sign for the future of our Scouting movement, and we look forward to all the amazing things we can accomplish together in our new council.
