Join Scouting

Scouting is adventure, family, fun, character, leadership and so much more. In Scouting, boys and girls start with their best right now-selves and grow into their very best future selves. It’s fun, hands-on learning and achievement that puts kids in the middle of the action and prepares them for today – and for life. To find a Troop to join near you, visit BeAScout.org.
