Join Boy Scouts
Boy Scouts is for boys who are 11 years old, or who have completed the fifth grade or earned the Arrow of Light Award and are at least 10 years old, but not yet 18 years old. Boy Scouts learn everything from rock climbing, fishing, cooking, first aid, emergency preparedness, wilderness survival skills, plumbing, electricity, personal management, learn leadership skills, respect for others, and how important the community is, as well as family and much more. They are taught and instructed how to be good, strong leaders for the future.
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. The goal of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare every eligible youth in America to become a responsible, participating citizen and leader who is guided by the Scout Oath and Law.
