Outdoor adventure is the promise made to boys and girls when they join Scouting.
Young people yearn for outdoor programs that stir their
imagination and interest.


Scouts BSA is designed to take place in the outdoors. It’s outside that Scouts share responsibilities and learn to live with one another. It’s outside that skills and activities practiced at troop meetings come alive with purpose. Outside is the laboratory in which Scouts gain self-esteem, leadership skills, and an appreciation for the world around them.

Scouts in Scouts BSA plan their own advancement and progress at their own pace. Choose from 120 interests ranging from game development to wilderness survival. Experts in these fields are ready to provide fun, real-world experiences. A Scout is rewarded for each achievement which helps them gain self-confidence. Setting their own goals helps Scouts grow in self-reliance.
