Join Scouts

What we want to ask you is:

When was the last time you carried a backpack to go camping?

Have you ever slept in a snow igloo?

What is your best memory while hiking?

Where is your favorite place to watch the sunrise?

Boy Scouts is about building character, developing personal fitness, and learning leadership and citizenship. These goals are achieved in the outdoors. The adventure of hiking, camping, swimming, boating, high-adventure challenges, and touring is woven into the program.

What Boy Scouts wants to do, is get YOU out into the outdoors and experience life.

After all, What did YOU do this weekend?
