The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation's largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness.
Our council works to serve our community through partnerships with community organizations to charter Scouting units like Troops or Packs. Organizations that participate in this range from local churches, police departments, civic organizations, PTAs and even private companies.
We serve boys and girls between the ages of 5 to 10 through our Cub Scout Packs, Boys 11-18 in our Boy Scout Troops and teenage girls and boys through our Explorer Posts and Venture Crews. Program activities can very from traditional outdoor adventures like hiking and canoeing to STEM projects and career exploration. Each Scouting unit is a little different and this allows us to meet the needs of any family or organization.
For more than 100 years, we have helped build the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The Boy Scouts of America believes -- and, through over a century of experience, knows -- that helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society.
