Mission

For over 100 years, Scouting programs have instilled in youth the values found in the Scout Oath and Scout Law. Today, these values are just as relevant in helping youth grow to their full potential as they were in 1910. Scouting helps youth develop academic skills, self-confidence, ethics, leadership skills, and citizenship skills that influence their adult lives. The Boy Scouts of America provides youth with programs and activities that allow them to:

- Try new things
- Provide service to others
- Build self-confidence
- Reinforce ethical standards

While various activities and youth groups teach basic skills and promote teamwork, Scouting goes beyond that and encourages youth to achieve a deeper appreciation for service to others in their community. Scouting provides youth with a sense that they are important as individuals. It is communicated to them that those in the Scouting family care about what happens to them, regardless of whether a game is won or lost. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, Scouting promotes activities that lead to personal responsibility and high self-esteem. As a result, when hard decisions have to be made, peer pressure can be resisted and the right choices can be made.

Great Hearts Community Recommendations

"I was going to camp for the first time and was going to be away from home for the first time. I got super nervous and didn't want to go. My dad convinced me to go the bus and then make the decision. When I got there, I saw all my friends, and mustered enough courage to get on the bus and had a ton of fun that week. It was an early life lesson I've al..." - Paul Lorsbach
