Family Scouting

BSA’s mission 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 Scout Law. Our priority is to bring the benefits of Scouting to more youth while remaining true to our mission. We are excited to announce beginning January 2, 2018, our Cub Scouts programExternal Link will be open to boys and girls. By welcoming both girls and boys into the program, more youth will have access to the character development and values-based leadership that Scouting promises and be better prepared for the future.
