Our Youth Programs

Basic overview

Bring on the adventure

The sole purpose of Scouting is to build character that enables each member to develop as a good citizen, physically, mentally, socially, and spiritually. Although these goals are not peculiar to Scouting, our Movement is distinctive in its spirit and method. Scouting is based on three broad principles which represent its fundamental beliefs:

  • Duty to God
  • Duty to Others
  • Duty to Self

The outdoors is an essential part of the Scouting programs. Weekend events, hikes, camping and seasonal sports opportunities round out the Scouting experience. Developing an active, healthy lifestyle is the prime goal.
