Today’s Scouting is more inclusive, more relevant and more engaging than ever before – without losing the values that have helped shape countless young people for the last century. The activities may change, but one thing never will: Scouting offers experiences that are built for fun and designed for growth:

The next great adventure is on the horizon, where young Scouts can challenge themselves to develop the tools they need to succeed as adults.

Along their Scouting journey, Scouts earn merit badges and work toward achieving the highest rank – Eagle Scout: an accomplishment that provides a lifetime of opportunities. It all comes from experiential learning – learning by doing. This hands-on approach enables Scouts to be better equipped to apply their skills and use them to create a better world – and a better self.
