Scouting Goes Hand in Hand with a Busy Life

Scouting is a yearround program allowing youth to participate in multiple youth programs. They may go and come as their schedules allow, understanding that some work may need to be done outside of meetings to stay on track for advancement. We encourage involvement in sports, church, school, fine and practical arts, and any other activity that helps young people develop character and life skills.

And Scouting will always be here when they get back if they have to step away.

Investments in Character That Pay Dividends

Scouting is not free. It costs money for the BSA to provide professional staff, programming, and insurance. It costs money to buy uniforms, gear and other materials, and it costs money to travel, go on campouts, and summer camp.

Scouting also provides value. It offers benefits beyond the quantifiable value of physical materials and professional services, and even beyond the experiential value of good times, camaraderie and life-long memories.

Learn more about both the values and costs of Scouting.


If you are a parent considering whether to sign your son or daughter up to be a Scout, we encourage you to discuss any concerns or questions with Scout leaders. Financial assistance is also available. If you still have questions, please contact the W. D. Boyce Council Service Center.

Scouts have the opportunity each year to earn dollars to support their Scouting adventures!

Our popcorn sale is a (tasty!) staple of Scouting that many look forward to each year. It helps pay for council support, troop activities and individual costs for participating Scouts. They can earn awesome prizes, free summer camp, uniforms, campouts and much more!

Outside of fundraising, Scouts can also earn post-high school scholarships.

Scouts BSA Organization

• Each “troop” is made up of “patrols” with 6-8 Scouts in each patrol.

• Troops are single-gender. Some may have “sibling” troops with occasional joint activities, but otherwise operate independently of each other.

• Scouts help lead, plan and guide the activities of the troop with adult supervision and leadership.

Meetings and Activities

Generally once a week or every other week, with activities throughout the month.
