Ask any American what they think of when you say “Boy Scouts” and the vast majority will mention camping and the outdoors. It is as American as baseball, hotdogs, or apple pie. While the association of Boy Scouts and the fun of outdoor adventure is a natural one, it is perhaps more important to understand that camping experiences provide more than just fun. While our organization recognizes the importance of providing enjoyable experiences for youth, our program is designed to accomplish much more. Specifically, the BSA is committed to providing a program that comprehensively addresses the important elements of healthy youth development. The long-term goal is to prepare young people to achieve their full potential for happy and productive lives.
