Our goal is to give every youth the opportunity to be a Scout and experience everything that Scouting, Exploring, and Venturing has to offer. In a time when youth are faced with any number of challenges, parents are looking for a place that helps to reinforce the values, ethics, and life skills that they want for their children. Scouting is about preparing youth for the world today. Our families have been excited to participate in today’s Scouting program activities, which are designed with families in mind. The Dan Beard Council was excited to welcome 2,354 Cub Scouts in 2021, more than 180 new Scouts than what was recruited in 2019!

Scouts are more likely than
non-scouts to hold a leadership position at work or in the community.

Long term Scouts are nearly as twice as likely as non-scouts to graduate from college.

embrace positive social values
 than non-scouts.

Scouts showed a four-fold increase in cheerfulness and kindness
when compared to non-scouts.
