Join Scouting


Listen to Becky's story now........

Scouting is for the family, a family like Yours!


The Adventure Begins Here...   


The adventure starts with Cub Scouting, a year-round family program designed for youth in the 1st through 5th grades, or 7 to 10 years of age. The program emphasizes shared leadership, learning about the community, family understanding, character development, citizenship training, and personal fitness.

Our youth grow up fast. Give your scouter a valuable gift by encouraging them to join Cub Scouting today. The time you invest in our youth today will make a difference in the person they become tomorrow.

Character Development   


Scouts BSA is for youth who are 11, or are at least 10 years old and have completed the fifth grade or have earned the Cub Scout Arrow of Light Award, through 17 years old. Youth experience a vigorous outdoor program and peer group leadership with the counsel of an adult Scoutmaster to achieve the BSA's objectives of developing character, citizenship, and personal fitness. Camping, fun with friends -- and more. It’s the adventure of a lifetime.

Give your scout a valuable gift by encouraging them to join Scouts BSA today. The time you invest in your child today will make a difference in the person they become tomorrow.

Experiences of a lifetime   


Venturing is a coed, high-adventure program for youth 14 through 20 years of age, or 13 years of age and have completed the eighth grade. The program provides positive experiences through exciting and meaningful youth-run activities that help them pursue their special interests, grow by teaching others, and develop leadership skills.

Life is an adventure…go higher, go farther, go Venturing.

Give back to the youth in your area

Through volunteering with the Boy Scouts of America, you will work with youth to build a better future for everyone.

Scouting volunteers come to Scouting from a variety of backgrounds and experiences. Plumbers, lawyers, housewives, teachers, doctors, janitors, and scientists—people from just about every occupation imaginable – are involved in leading youth to become responsible, caring, and competent citizens. They also quickly discover that Scout volunteering enables them to learn new skills and build lifelong friendships while having fun.
