Why Scouting?

Since 1910, Scouting has helped mold the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The Boy Scouts of America believes and, through nearly a century of experience, understands that helping youth puts us on a path toward a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society.

Scouting, with programs for young men and women, helps meet six essential needs of the young people growing up in our society. Those needs are:

  • Building Character
  • Faith Traditions
  • Healthy Living
  • Lifelong Learning
  • Mentoring
  • Serving Other
