A lot has changed for Boy Scouts of America.
The organization has an iPhone app for its latest rulebook. Instead of using just nature to navigate, Boy Scouts use GPS units. Even their new uniforms have pockets for MP3 players and other gadgets.
"We used to teach the boys how to survive in the wilderness by using map and compass smoke signals and that type of stuff," Kurten said. "We're now teaching the boys to use GPS."
Centennial celebrations will happen across the country over the next year.
