Boy Scouting is for boys who are 11 through 17 years old, or are at least 10 years old and have completed the fifth grade or have earned the Cub Scout Arrow of Light Award. Boys 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, personal fitness, camping, fun with friends -- and more. It’s the adventure of a lifetime.
Give your son a valuable gift by encouraging him to join Boy Scouting today. The time you invest in him today will make a difference in the person he becomes tomorrow.
