Welcome to the heart of Scouting

New England’s four hundred year-old history of town meetings and direct democracy are echoed in Scouting’s aim to help young people become active, responsible, and participating citizens. Our long tradition of close neighborhoods and community involvement reflect a Scout’s responsibility to
help other people at all times.

Inspiring the leaders of tomorrow

The Boy Scouts of America provides the nation’s foremost youth program of character development and values-based leadership training, which helps young people be “Prepared. For Life.®”. The BSA was founded in 1910, and since then, more than 110 million Americans have been participants in BSA programs at some time. The BSA is part of the international Scout Movement and became a founding member organization of the World Organization of the Scout Movement in 1922.

What to expect


Youth experience dramatic physical and emotional growth. Scouting offers opportunities to channel much of that change into productive endeavors.


The Scouting programs are flexible and accommodate the need to balance the work and life requirements of a busy family. Scouting is always there.


Scouts work on achievements at his or her own pace. Your child can advance in the program even if they need to take time off for that spring soccer league.


The skills and values your child learns through Scouting can be applied in any non-Scouting activity he or she participates in. Character fights peer pressure.
