Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, Venturing, Exploring and Sea Scouts

Scouting begins in Kindergarten with boys and girls and their families participating in fun activities while learning about the community. Cub Scouts continues through 5th grade as we continue to involve families in leadership, family activities, life skills learning, outdoor activities with an emphasis on ethical decision-making and character building.

Scouts BSA is our youth program that begins with the end of 5th grade for boys and girls, in separate troops. Scouting at this level involves youth leadership, where Cub Scouts involved adult leadership. The adults in Scouts BSA are there to advise and counsel, with the youth leading the program of more advanced outdoor activities and peer leadership.

Venturing, Exploring and Sea Scouts are programs for young men and women ages 14-20 and provide positive experiences through exciting and meaningful activities that help young adults pursue their special interests, grow, develop leadership skills, and become good citizens.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our mission is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

Scout Oath: On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.

Scout Law: A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent.

The vision of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare every eligible youth in America to become a responsible, participating citizen and leader who is guided by the Scout Oath and Law.
