Be Prepared.

It’s more than a motto, it’s a way of life.

The Boy Scouts of America’s mission is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law. 

Once your child is a Scout, they will encounter many unique and educational experiences. The Scouting program will teach your child outdoor skills, the value of servant leadership and giving back to the community. Scouts develop positive character and leadership traits that will last them a lifetime.
