Boys experience a vigorous outdoor program and peer group leadership with the counsel of an adult Scoutmaster to achieve the BSA's objectives of developing character, citizenship, and personal fitness. Camping, fun with friends--and more. It's the adventure of a lifetime.
Boy Scouting is for boys who are 11, (or are at least 10 years old and have completed the fifth grade or have earned the Cub Scout Arrow of Light Award) through 17 years old. Most people associate Boy Scouting with outdoor adventure–and with good reason. Scouting is an outdoor program designed to develop character, citizenship, and fitness. With the Scout Oath and Law as a guide, Scouting helps a boy develop into a well-rounded young man. Through the advancement program, a Scout can progress in rank though achievements, gaining additional knowledge and responsibilities. Earning Merit Badges provides opportunities for Scouts to be introduced to a lifelong hobby or a rewarding career. In Boy Scouting, youth take responsibility for the activities of the troop. By planning and organizing activities, they develop teamwork and learn to lead as well as follow. Through the support of parents and religious and neighborhood organizations, Scouts develop an awareness and appreciation of their role in their community.
