BSA Mission Statement
The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
Be a Scout
Scouting is a family-based, year-round program positively affecting every area of a young person’s life. Scouting provides challenge, adventure and lessons that last a lifetime. It is fun with a purpose – reinforcing values taught at home to help young people fulfill their potential. The program encourages participants to achieve a deeper appreciation for others, including peers, parents and other adults. Early in the Scouting experience, Scouts learn the value of serving others.

Cub Scouts is a year-round, family-friendly program designed for boys who are in the first grade through fifth grade (ages 7-10). Activities are used to achieve the focus of Scouting – citizenship training, character development and personal fitness. Many of the activities happen right in the den and pack.
In 1930, the Boy Scouts of America initiated a program to help younger boys through Cub Scouting. First graders are called Tiger Cubs and participate in the program with an adult partner. Second graders are called Wolves; third graders are Bears. Fourth- and fifth-grade (or 10-year-old) boys are called Webelos (WE’ll BE LOyal Scouts) and participate in more advanced activities that begin to prepare them to become Boy Scouts. Parents, leaders, and organizations work together to achieve the purposes of Cub Scouting. Currently, Cub Scouting is the largest of the BSA’s three membership divisions.
The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation’s largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness.
For over a century, the BSA has helped build the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The Boy Scouts of America believes — and, through over a century of experience, knows — that helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society.
