Boy Scouts prove themselves in an environment that challenges their courage and tests their nerve. After they've been given the proper guidance from those with experience and know-how, they take their own lead, going places they've never gone, seeing things they've never seen, and diving into the rugged world of outdoor adventure, relying on teamwork and character to accomplish what everyone else thinks is impossible.

Sound fun? If you're a boy age 11, or at least 10 and have completed the fifth grade, or have earned the Cub Scout Arrow of Light Award, to 17 years old, the time for a real adventure is now.

Now your boy can experience the fun, excitement and adventure of the world around him. He can learn confidence, respect, trust, mental strength and a deep understanding of what he can do for others. It's never too late to get into a good family-centered program. Scouting offers a time-tested set of activities that has produced fine citizens, dedicated family members and strong community leaders for more than 100 years.
