Youth Protection Training

The Boy Scouts of America places the greatest importance on creating the most secure environment possible for our youth members. To maintain such an environment, the BSA developed numerous procedural and leadership selection policies and provides parents and leaders with resources for the Cub Scout, Scouts BSA and Venturing programs.

Scouting Programs

Our Scouting programs are designed to give kids and young adults the skills they need to unlock their full potential and to live life outside – it’s bigger and way more fun out there!

Cub Scouting is fun for the whole family. In Cub Scouting, boys and girls start with their best right now selves and grow into their very best future selves. It’s fun, hands-on learning and achievement that puts kids in the middle of the action and prepares them for today – and for life.

Scouts BSA is the traditional Scouting experience for youth in the fifth grade through high school. Service, community engagement, and leadership development become increasingly important parts of the program as Scouts lead their own activities and work their way toward earning Scouting’s highest rank, Eagle Scout.

Venturing

Co-ed 14–20 years old

Venturing is all about building your adventure with your friends. Scouts will choose activities that matter to them and create their own opportunities for skill development like leadership, event-planning, organization, communication, and responsibility… all while having a blast!

Sea Scouting

Co-ed 14–20 years old

The Sea Scout program is THE place to be for young adults who love the water. The hands-on experiences of managing a ship’s watercraft will create memories that will never be forgotten! Scouts are given the opportunity to develop their maritime skillset while making lifelong friends and advancing their career opportunities for later.

Exploring

Co-ed 14–20 years old

Exploring gives young people a chance to investigate careers and create connections starting from a young age. It gives them the opportunity to sample different professions OR dig into the vocation they feel called to! Through mentorship and firsthand experiences, Scouts will develop lifelong skills and knowledge.

STEM

Co-ed 14–20 years old

It’s time for kids to explore their world! The STEM Scouting program creates immersive experiences for youth to get hands-on in learning science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). STEM Scouts will work with professionals in lab settings and puzzle through experiments with like-minded friends.
