Bringing Scouting to the differently abled

Troop 85 in Asheville, North Carolina, is devoted to developmentally and physically challenged Scouts. They’ve got guys with Down syndrome, autism and other physical and mental challenges.

At the same time, they’re just regular Scouts doing what Scouts do — camping, archery, rifle shooting, swimming, fire starting, and more.

“They really are special human beings,” leader Tim Buckner told the Citizen-Times newspaper. “I don’t think you can find a kinder group of people.”
