Boy Scouts is a program for youth ages 11 through 17 designed to develop character, citizenship, and fitness. Through the advancement program and peer group leadership, Scouting helps youth develop into well-rounded young adults. The Eagle Scout Award, the highest rank in Scouting, is recognized around the world as a mark of excellence.
Boy Scouts look forward to Boy Scout Camping opportunities and many other district activities. In Boy Scouts, youth take responsibility for the activities of the troop. By planning and organizing activities, they develop teamwork and learn to lead as well as follow. While in Boy Scouts, many young men also participate in the Venturing and/or Sea Scouts programs.
