Boy Scouting means outdoor adventure! The Scouting program packs character development, citizenship, and all levels of fitness into a fun and exciting experience. 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 through 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 troops. 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.

HOW TO JOIN
Your son can join Boy Scouts by attending a rally being held at his school or a school of your choice! If you don’t want to wait or cannot make it to the school rally, boys still have the opportunity to join. In fact, boys can join anytime throughout the year!
