Scouting is a year-round program uniquely designed to meet the needs of boys and their families. The program offers fun and challenging activities that promote character development and physical fitness. Family involvement is an essential part of the program, and parents are encouraged to play an active role in making the most of the short time they have to impact the lives of their children.Scouting is designed to be experienced outdoors. Hiking, camping, mountain biking, skateboarding, BMX, mountain climbing, kayaking, whitewater rafting–these are just some of a Scout’s outdoor experiences.How Scouting WorksThe Scouting program is delivered through local civic, faith-based, and educational institutions called chartered organizations, which operate Scouting units to deliver the programs to their youth members, as well as the community at large.Together, these organizations are run by almost one million adult volunteers dedicated to helping youth learn and grow.
