Physically Strong

ScoutStrong - Fit, Fuel, Fun

"To carry out all duties and work of a Scout properly a fellow has to be strong, healthy, and active. And he can make himself so if he takes a little care about it."
Robert Baden-Powell, Scouting for Boys, 1915

Welcome to the Physically Strong web portal! In keeping with the underlying message of the Scout Oath, the purpose of this web portal is to present Scouting-relevant wellness information aimed primarily at the BSA's adult leadership. the articles, tip sheets, podcasts and videos in this centralized location are geared to help Scouts (as well as non-Scouts) increase their physical activity and improve their existing eating habits.
