What is Scouting?
In short, it is the most successful youth program in American history. It is different from many other programs, being a proven combination of fun, adventure and values. Scouts grow up to be better, stronger members of their community and nation. Scouting serves all races and creeds, and how much money you have is not a factor. It does not matter if you are athletically gifted. Scouting is opportunity - the opportunity to succeed.
Boy Scouting, one of the traditional membership divisions of the BSA, is available to boys who have earned the Arrow of Light Award and are at least 10 years old or have completed the fifth grade and are at least 10, or who are 11, but not yet 18 years old. The program achieves the BSA's objectives of developing character, citizenship, and personal fitness.
Scout Oath (or Promise)
On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong,
mentally awake, and morally straight.
A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly,
courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty,
brave, clean, and reverent.
Social Media Policy
Although using Social Media is not a Scouting activity, their use to connect with others interested in Scouting can be a very positive experience. But the creation and maintenance of these channels requires forethought, care and responsibility.
For that reason, we provide the following guidelines to help you navigate the use of social media channels. The guidelines in the link below, are a compliment to the BSA's existing Youth Protection policies and training.
