Corning Engineers Provide Life Lessons to Scouts

Three Corning engineers recently teamed up to successfully complete a two-year project – but it wasn’t for Corning. Using many of the skills they have learned at Corning, they taught a group of Boy Scouts about leadership, self-confidence, and problem-solving during a canoeing and camping trek in Canada.

The five Scouts and five adults participated in the grueling six-day, five-night journey in August in Frontenac Provincial Park in Ontario.  

In the six days, the group hiked and backpacked a total of 17 miles between lakes carrying their canoes, and canoed a total of 30 miles.

The project planning and teamwork skills developed at Corning helped the engineers pull off the adventure with the group, and they plan to have more adventures in the near future, the engineers said.

“Corning always needs strong leaders, and for me, this is what Boy Scouts does. It teaches leadership at a young age,” said one of the engineers.
