What is a Boy Scout?

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.

What is the Boy Scout Oath?

On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong,
mentally awake, and morally straight.

What is the Boy Scout Law?

A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.

We need you!

The Council Activities Committee plans a Council-wide Camporee every other year. We start planning this event about 18 months prior. We choose a theme, stations, patch design, put together the Leader’s Guide, etc. We need everyone’s input. Please reach out and join us and be a part of the fun.

Throughout the year the Council Activities Committee plans events for the scouts in our Council. These events would not be possible without the support of our troops serving as staff. Please check the events on the calendar against your Troop Calendar and plan to lend a hand to your young scouting brothers at an event.
