Boy Scouts

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 the Scout 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 troop. By planning and organizing activities, they develop teamwork and learn to lead as well as follow. Through the support of parents and other organizations, Scouts develop an awareness and appreciation of their role in their community.
