Boy Scouts gives you an opportunity to try new things, explore the outdoors, meet new friends, and have fun at the same time. Why is it fun? Because you and your new scout friends run the troop. You’ll be teamed up with some older scouts who will “show you the ropes”. In a few years, you’ll be the older scout, and you’ll help lead the troop!
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.
