What is Scouting?

The mission of the Boy Scouts of America 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 Law and to develop character, citizenship and personal fitness (including mental, spiritual and physical) in today’s youth. 

Every Scouting activity should be a positive experience in which youth and leaders feel emotionally secure and find support from their peers and leaders. Everything we do with our Scouts, including songs, skits and ceremonies, should be positive and meaningful and should not contradict the philosophy express in the Scout Law.
