Boy Scouting

Outdoor adventure, the promise made to boys when they join Scouting, is realized as a Boy Scout, where fun and challenging outdoor adventure stir their interest while continuing to achieve the mission of the Boy Scouts, which is to expand personal character, inspire community involvement, and develop personal health. Besides outdoor programs, a number of other opportunities like summer jobs, scholarships, and special programs are available to Boy Scouts. Awards and goal oriented programs such as the Order of the Arrow and Eagle Scouts recognize Scouts who exemplify the spirit of Scouting and often play a significant role in their life as adults. Boy Scouting is for: boys who have completed the fifth grade and are at least 10; who are 11, but not yet 18 years old; or have earned the Arrow of Light Award and are at least 10 years old.
