The broad purpose of the Boy Scouts of America is to help young men develop their character. There is much emphasis placed on assisting these young men to develop into strong healthy citizens who will lead our communities and country in the years ahead. Our methods help to promote these ideals through the challenge of putting them into practice with the Troop Program. This is done in a way that is both challenging and fun.
To provide opportunities for young men to practice leadership, citizenship, and confident independence, we use the outdoor program of Scouting. This program allows us to remove the boys from their familiar surroundings and place them in situations where they will have to rely on their skills and the cooperation of their fellow Scouts!
