Boy Scouts

What is the Boy Scout Program?

Boy Scouting, one of the traditional membership divisions of the BSA, is available to boys who have earned the Arrow of Light Award and are at least 10 years old or have completed the fifth grade and are at least 10, or who are 11, but not yet 18 years old. The program achieves the BSA’s objectives of developing character, citizenship, and personal fitness.

Outdoor Activities

  • Camporees: camping with other troops, involving competition using Scouting skills and knowledge
  • Summer camps: weeklong camps with troops learning outdoor skills
  • Scouting shows: gala events demonstrating to the public how Scouting serves youth in the community
  • National and world jamborees: camping events held at four-year intervals where Scouts and leaders from the BSA or the World Scouting Association come together
