What is Boy scouting



Boy Scouts of America was started to provide a community organization that offers effective character, citizenship, and personal fitness training for youth. It endeavors to develop American citizenship in boys and encourages them to be physically, mentally, and emotional fit.

Boy scouting is a program designed for boys between the ages of 11 and 18. The program achieves the BSA's objectives of developing character, citizenship, and personal fitness among youth focusing on a vigorous outdoor program.
