Scouting programs are designed to meet the needs of today’s youth by implementing fun challenging activities that promote character development and physical fitness. With positive adult mentors, encouragement to “do your best”, and one-of-a-kind outdoor programs, Scouts see personal growth and develop interpersonal skills, public speaking, self-confidence, team work and conflict resolution skills at their specific age level. Cub Scouting is a fun and educational program created for boys and girls in first through fifth grade. Besides providing a positive place where youth can enjoy safe, wholesome activities, Cub Scouting focuses on promoting education, developing character and building self-esteem. Boy Scouting is an exciting leadership and character development program for young men ages 11-18. With the support of adult leaders, boys learn self-confidence and develop personal values guided by the ideals found in the Scout Oath and Law. Venturing is a program for young men and women in high school and college designed to help them grow into responsible and caring adults through education and recreational experiences with an emphasis on high adventure and advanced leadership training. Exploring is a dynamic worksite-based career education program for young men and women ages 14-20.
