Start your adventure with the Boy Scouts of America
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
More than a motto, it's a way of life.
The Boy Scouts of America’s mission is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law. In 2018, more than 77,000 young women and their families said, “Scout Me In” when we welcomed both young men and women into our Cub Scouting program. And this year, we are proud to be able to offer young women the opportunity to join Scouts BSA. By welcoming all, even more youth will have access to the character development and values-based leadership that Scouting promises.
It is important to understand that Cub Scouts and Scouts BSA are not co-ed. While these programs will be available to both young men and women, Cub Scout dens and Scouts BSA troops will be single-gender because the BSA recognizes and celebrates that young men and women develop differently, and there are times that single-gender learning is the most appropriate.
