What is Scouts BSA?
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 youth lead their own activities and work their way toward earning Scouting’s highest rank, Eagle Scout.
The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people
to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes
by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
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, Reverent.
