Boy Scouts

Turn good kids into better people

With more than 130 Merit Badges available—from Archery and Art to Welding and Wilderness Survival—Scouting turns doing into learning. Scouts explore their interests and improve their skills while working toward Scouting’s highest rank: Eagle. By creating, planning and then doing their own service projects, Scouts learn the value and thrill of seeing courage, skill and hard work pay off. Add in outdoor adventures, hiking and camping, and Scouting gives boys the experiences they need to become men.
