For more than a century, the Boy Scouts of America has helped build the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. We believe – and, through more than a century of experience, know – that helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible and productive society.
Cub Scouts– a year-round, family-friendly program designed for children who are in kindergarten through fifth grade (ages 5-10). Activities are used to achieve the aims of Scouting- citizenship training, character development and personal fitness.
Scouts BSA– designed for kids ages 11-18, Scouts learn responsible citizenship, character development and self reliance through participation in a wide range of outdoor activities and educational programs.
Venturing– a program for young men and women between the ages of 14 and 20. Its purpose is to provide positive experiences to help youth mature and prepare them to become responsible adults.
STEM Scouts– a national pilot program focused on fun ways for girls and boys to learn more about science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) through hands-on activities led by STEM professionals. Through weekly meetings and four-to-six modules that cover a variety of disciplines, STEM Scouts is designed to be fast paced, thought provoking and fun.
Scouts with Disabilities – The basic premise of Scouting for youth with disabilities is that every boy wants to participate fully and be respected like every other member of the troop. While there are, by necessity, troops exclusively composed of Scouts with disabilities, experience has shown that Scouting usually succeeds best when every boy is part of a patrol in a regular troop.
