The Adventure Continues!
The adventure continues with Boy Scouting, a year-round family
program designed for boys.
Boy Scouting, one of the traditional membership divisions of the
BSA, is available to boys who have earned the Arrow of Light Award
and are at least 10 years old or have completed the fifth grade and
are at least 10, or who are 11, but not yet 18 years old. The

citizenship, and personal fitness.
The program emphasizes shared leadership, learning about the
community, family understanding, character development, personal
responsibility, citizenship training, and personal fitness.
