What We Offer

There are many youth organizations, including sports, service clubs, fitness and educational programs. We salute them all for the work they do to help young people. But Scouting goes above and beyond, providing programs and activities that:

  • allow boys to try new things,
  • provide service to others,
  • build self-confidence, and
  • reinforce ethical standards.

Scouting is filled with fun, adventure and values that last a lifetime. Men who were Scouts five or more years as boys are more likely than men with no Scouting experience to:

  • Graduate from high school (91% versus 87%)
  • Graduate from college (35% versus 19%)
  • Earn higher annual household incomes ($80,000 versus $61,000)
  • Have lifelong friendships (89% versus 74%)
  • Attend religious services (87% versus 77%)
  • Believe helping others should come before one’s own self-interest (92% versus 83%)

For Your Family

The title of this section might confuse some parents. They have a picture of what they believe Scouting is all about… and that picture normally focuses only on a boy in uniform. It’s true that Scouting programs are focused on boys, but we want the whole family involved. Dads AND Moms can serve as leaders of Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops or Venture Crews. All we ask is that you take part in leadership and youth protection training that we provide. Young women 14-20 have an opportunity to explore in Venturing.

In short, Scouting makes families stronger. How? Consider these findings by the firm Louis Harris & Associates:

At least 90% of parents surveyed said that because of Cub Scouting, they share time with their sons by

  • Working on projects together 95%
  • Going places together 91%
  • Talking together 90%

Boy Scouting also provides structure to bring parents and boys together for projects and activities. 85% of teenagers in Venturing said they talked with their parents about things they learned in the program.

In the end, the most important part of Scouting projects and activities is not the projects or activities themselves – it is the valuable gift of time spent between a Scout and his or her parents.

Prepared. For Life.
