Charting impact

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

The Mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to instill values in young people in order for them to make ethical decisions over their lifetimes. The values we instill are based on those found in the Scout Oath and Scout Law.

Our council volunteers and staff devoted significant energy, talent, and expertise to local unit volunteers and community organizations, who in turn deliver the Scouting, Venturing, and Exploring programs to over 1,900 youth and their families in the two-county area we serve.

Scout units meet weekly for fun activities, life skills development, and peer leadership opportunities. Most units also have a monthly outing (camp, hike, field trip, service project), usually held on a weekend.

We are constantly working to expand our network of volunteers and community organization partnerships in order to retain existing youth and families, and serve additional new youth and their families.

We recently launched the Family Scouting initiative in concert with National BSA, by which we added girls to Cub Scouting in 2018 and girls to Scouts BSA (middle school age) troops in early 2019. We had already been serving both girls and boys in our teen programs (Venturing, Sea Scouting, Exploring) since 1971.
