Join Scouts BSA

Scouts – boys or girls – go camping, hiking, and boating, explore their interests through more than 130 Merit Badges, and learn how to lead others while working toward Scouts BSA’s highest rank: Eagle.

  • For youth in Grades 6-12 (exceptions: at least 10 years old, in the Fifth Grade, register on or after March 1  |  at least 10 years old and earned the Arrow of Light Award  |  11 years old)
  • Scouts BSA Troops are boy-only or girl-only
  • Scouts imagine, plan, and carry out their own service projects, bringing to life the values of being Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, and Kind.
  • Whether it’s a fun outdoor trip or a service project close to home, Scouts often learn the greatest lessons when something doesn’t go as planned – and figure out how to “get the job done” anyway.
