What will I do in Boy Scouts?
Boy Scouting 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 Boy Scouts gain self-esteem,
leadership skills, and an appreciation for the world around them.
Boy Scouts travel to amazing places, from the mountains of New Mexico to the Florida Keys. Ride jet-skis, ATVs, horses, and climb 60-foot walls all at summer camp. Boy Scouts can get you there.
Boy Scouts plan their own advancement and progress at their own
pace. Choose from 120 interests ranging from game develeopment to wilderness survival. Experts in these fields are ready to provide fun, real-world experiences. A Scout is rewarded for each achievement which helps him
gain self-confidence. Setting their own goals helps Boy Scouts grow in self-reliance.
How often do we meet?
Boy Scout troops meet weekly. They'll also participate in a monthly troop activity like camping, bouldering, canoeing, STEM activities, and more.
Who can join?
Boys, ages 11-18 can join Boy Scouts after completing the fifth grade or after earning their Arrow of Light in Cub Scouts.
What's the cost?
The membership fee to join Boy Scouts is $24 per year and is pro-rated.
Other costs for uniforms, activities, and camping trips are not
included in the membership fee. Fundraising programs are
available to help keep costs low.
How does Boy Scouts include parents and guardians?
Scouting is a volunteer-led program. Each Scout troop is
sponsored by a local community organization. Parents are welcome and encouraged to get involved as a troop leader or volunteer. Parents and the community organization select troop leaders.
Scout leaders have the opportunity to work with young men and their
families, improving the community throught fun-filled activities that teach values of the Scout Oath and Law. By
serving as a leader you can help make a
positive difference in the kind of adults Scouts grow into.
Many tools, resources, and trainings are available to assist volunteers in becoming effective leaders and enjoy their experience.
