Be Prepared.

It’s more than a motto, it’s a way of life. Being prepared means having the ability to deal with many of the tough challenges life presents – that’s what Scouting is all about. Through its time-tested program, Scouting provides young people with opportunities to mentor to their peers, build character, and enrich their faith. These activities build strong family bonds and help youth reach their full potential by instilling values that last a lifetime.

One of the strengths of the Scouting program is the unique relationship between religious and community organizations, parents, and leaders. Working together, they are able to focus the necessary resources and leadership on the single task of serving youth. The result is children, families, and communities that are stronger and better prepared for the future. Ready to learn more? We invite you to explore our variety of youth programs and volunteer resources. When you’re ready to get started, we are prepared to help you navigate the right Scouting path for you.
