Welcome to our Scouting Family!

As a parent, you want your son or daughter to grow up to be a self-reliant, dependable, and caring individual.  Scouting has these same goals in mind for them.  Since 1910, we have been weaving lifetime values into fun and educational activities designed to assist parents in strengthening character, good citizenship, and physical fitness in youth.

Scouting teaches family values.  Activities are intended for the whole family.  You work with your child on his or her advancement award requirements.   We know that youth do not join Scouting just to get their character built.  They join because it is fun.




Take a look at our guide to help you understand how you and your child fit into the Scouting Family.
