Join Scouts

The Boy Scouts of America (the BSA) is one of the largest Scouting organizations in the United States of America, with more than 2.4 million youth participants and nearly one million adult volunteers. The BSA was founded in 1910, and more than 110 million Americans have participated in BSA programs since its inception.

The BSA’s goal is to train youth in responsible citizenship, character development, and self-reliance through participation in a wide range of outdoor activities, educational programs, and, at older age levels, career-oriented programs in partnership with community organizations. For younger members, the Scout method is part of the program to instill typical Scouting values such as trustworthiness, good citizenship, and outdoors skills, through a variety of activities such as camping, aquatics, and hiking.

The BSA offers an online application process for youth and adults. Register and pay without any paper!

The Scouting experience is divided into five programs according to age and activities.


Scouting is something that I can do with my family, it supports my love for the outdoors, and I get to try new activities.

Experiencing the wilderness with other Scouts is my favorite part about Scouting.
