Introduction to Scouting

Mission Statement of the Boy Scouts of America


The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

Aims of Scouting


There are three aims of Scouting:

  1. Character development
  2. Citizenship training
  3. Mental and physical fitness

The Methods of Scouting


There are eight fundamental methods for achieving the “Aims of Scouting”:

The Ideals – the Scout Oath, Scout Law, Scout Motto and the Scout Slogan.
The patrol method – a smaller group within the larger troop that works together.
The outdoors – fun and adventure in the outdoors
Advancement - recognition of a boy’s achievement and a natural outcome of an active troop.
Association with adults – provide positive role models.
Personal growth – the opportunities to seek and find answers.
Leadership development - learning skills through learning to lead.
The uniform - develops a sense of belonging to their patrol and troop.
