The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law. The Scouting program has three specific objectives, commonly referred to as the "Aims of Scouting." They are character development, citizenship training, and personal fitness. This is accomplished by an outdoor/camping environment, opportunities for advancement (achievements), and recognition.
Scout membership is open to: A boy who is 11 years old, or one who has completed the fifth grade or earned the Arrow of Light Award (from Cub Scouting) and is at least 10 years old, but is not yet 18 years old. For more information, visit Patriots Path Council
