Join Scouts BSA

Explore. Lead. Discover.

With troops for both boys and girls, youth in Scouts BSA not only explore their interests through more than 130 merit badges, they also learn collaboration and leadership skills while working toward the program’s highest rank: Eagle Scout. 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.
