About Scouting

The Boy Scouts of America will prepare every eligible youth in America to become a responsible, participating citizen and leader who is guided by the Scout Oath and Law.

 

Boy Scouting is available to boys who have earned the Arrow of Light Award and are at least 10 years old, or who have completed the fifth grade and are at least 10 years old, or who are 11 but not yet 18 years old. The program achieves the BSA's objectives of developing character, citizenship, and personal fitness.
