New to Scouting? Thinking about Scouting?

We developed this section to answer some common questions…
  • What is scouts about?
  • Will scouts help my son grow?
  • Why should I sign my son up?
  • How is Boy Scouts organized?
  • What’s with all the fancy scouting words? (ScoutSpeak)
  • What can I expect from scouts?
  • What is expected of me?
