The purpose of the Boy Scouts of America—incorporated on February 8, 1910, and chartered by Congress in 1916—is to provide an educational program for boys and young adults to build character, to train in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and to develop personal fitness.
Boy Scouting - A year-round program for boys from 11 years old until they turn 18, designed to achieve the aims of Scouting through a vigorous outdoor program and peer group leadership with the counsel of an adult Scoutmaster. (Boys also may become Boy Scouts if they have earned the Cub Scouting Arrow of Light Award and are at least 10 years old or have completed the fifth grade and are at least 10 years old.)
Boy Scouts have many special activities available to them, such as camporees, summer camps, Scouting shows, and national jamborees. The boys are encouraged to work on rank advancement and merit badges, which are designed to foster personal growth, learning, leadership and independence through an outdoor program. The scouting program also focuses on service to others and provides opportunities to provide volunteer service.
The Order of the Arrow, Scouting's national honor society, recognizes those Scout campers who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives. The order has local Lodge, Section, and National level meetings.
Eagle Scouts - Scouts who have become Eagle Scouts, the highest advancement award in Scouting, may join the National Eagle Scout Association. Most employers are familiar with and have great respect for those that have earned their Eagle Scout rank.
