The Purpose of Scouting

For more than 100 years, Scouting has been a symbol of adventure, excitement, and achievement. Providing once-in-a-lifetime experiences that prepare the next generation of boys for a lifetime of opportunity is serious business that couldn't be more fun.

The purpose of scouting is to teach boys to do things for themselves and others, to train them in Scoutcraft, and to teach them patriotism, courage, self-reliance, and kindred virtues, using methods which are now in common use by the Boy Scouts.

It was there when man first walked on the moon. And when a president struck a blow to an iron curtain with a single speech. It was there when Scouts across the country rallied to provide relief in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. For the past 100 years, it has been in the heart of every Scout who ever overcame one of life's challenges. It is the value of being prepared. The core of Scouting and a statement that inspires a lifetime of character and service. As we look to a new century of Scouting achievements, we light a new fire in the next generation of Scouts. We shall instill in them the honor and integrity that comes with being a Scout. We will build their character and ensure they are prepared for something more. We will prepare them for life.
