Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

We understand you may have questions when starting your Scouting adventure. We’re here to help.

What are the Scouting programs?

Cub Scouting

A year-round, family-friendly program designed for children in kindergarten through fifth grade (ages 5-10). Activities are used to achieve the aims of Scouting—citizenship training, character development and personal fitness.

Scouts BSA

 


Designed for ages 11-17, youth in Scouts BSA learn responsible citizenship, character development and self-reliance through participation in a wide range of outdoor activities and educational programs.

 

Venturing

 


A high-adventure based program for young men and women between the ages of 14 and 20. Its purpose is to provide positive experiences to help youth mature and prepare them to become responsible adults.

 

Exploring

 


A career development program for young men and women between the ages of 14 and 20. Exploring units have a focus on a single career field, such as police, fire/rescue, health, law, aviation and engineering.

 

How much does Scouting cost?

Scouting does charge fees for membership, events, and trips. Council and unit fundraising will help with those costs including Popcorn sales and will give a Scout the opportunity to earn the money needed to participate in summer camp or other programs. Conquistador Council believes all young people should participate and enjoy Scouting programs regardless of circumstance. If you would like more information about scholarships, please contact us by email or by phone at (575)-622-3461.

 

Below is a list of basic needs to start in each Scouting program. Items are available at council Scout Shops. Before purchasing any items, speak with your unit leader and he or she will be able to tell you more about any specific uniform or equipment guidelines for the pack, troop or crew.
