New to Scouting?

The Boy Scouts of America, founded in 1910, provides an effective educational program for boys and young adults, designed to:

  • Build moral strength and character
  • Encourage fitness
  • Prepare boys for the responsibilities of citizenship

Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of Boy Scouting, said that “Scouting is a game with a purpose.” The game is our fun and exciting program, but the purpose is to prepare boys to become better adults.

The Purpose of Scouting

Since 1930, the Boy Scouts of America has helped younger boys through Cub Scouting. It is a year-round family program designed for boys who are in the first grade through fifth grade (or 7, 8, 9, and 10 years of age). Parents, leaders, and organizations work together to achieve the purposes of Cub Scouting.

The 10 purposes of Cub Scouting are:

  1. Character Development
  2. Spiritual Growth
  3. Good Citizenship
  4. Sportsmanship and Fitness
  5. Family Understanding
  6. Respectful Relationships
  7. Personal Achievement
  8. Friendly Service
  9. Fun and Adventure
  10. Preparation for Boy Scouts
