Scouting wants you…and Your Friends

The Boy Scouts of America invites you and your child’s friends to become part of one of America’s leading values driven organizations. The Scout program is a valuable resource that can help families accomplish worthy goals while building and strengthening relationships within the family. Scouting combines fun with educational activities and life-long values. It also assists parents in helping their children strengthen character, develop good citizenship and enhance both mental and physical fitness. In addition, the program provides young people with positive peer groups and tools to shape their future. In Scouting, youth learn ideals like honesty, bravery, and respect. These values help them make constructive decisions throughout their life times and give them the confidence they need to grow and develop. Scouting teaches youth what is right by encouraging them to reflect on lessons learned through Scouting activities. So remember… invite your child to bring along his friends to the next meeting.
