Celebrating 100 Years of Scouting

Since 1910, the Boy Scouts of America has been fulfilling its mission of instilling timeless values in the lives of over 100 million youth.

As we continue our journey, the Scouting motto of "Be Prepared," the concern for our natural resources, and the focus on leadership is more important today that any time in the last 100 years.

The biggest gift that Scouting offers our community is the values it instills in the youth we serve.  Through EDUCATION, EXPERIENCE AND CHALLENGES, Scouting builds character that delivers value to our community long after a Scout's uniform is retired.
