Serving Today’s Families

BSA’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.

Our priority is to bring the benefits of Scouting to more youth while remaining true to our mission.

We are excited to announce beginning in 2018, our Cub Scouts program will be open to boys and girls. By welcoming both girls and boys into the program, even more youth will have access to the character development and values-based leadership that Scouting promises and be better prepared for future success.

This Webelos Scout’s campaign video for fifth-grade vice president is Oscar-worthy — Bryan on Scouting

Leave it to a Webelos Scout to devise a campaign video that’s positive, uplifting and downright awesome. Alexander Miles is a member of Pack 695 of the Sam Houston Area Council.

Buddy check! The importance of getting a friend whereever you go. | Scouting Magazine

In a crowded pool full of raucous boys splashing and swimming, the justification for frequent buddy checks appears self-evident. But do Scouts really need to get a friend for a quick trip to the latrine or when they meet with a merit badge counselor? Simply put, yes. Scouting’s buddy system calls for Scouts to pair…

This is Scout View

Scouts around Sweden have documented their favorite trails with 360°-cameras. Now you can join the adventure on Google Street View. Walk the trails we have walked, or hop directly to the spots that seem most exciting. We’ll keep walking and posting all through 2018 so remember to check back for new trails.

Time. Teaching Scouts How To Make Better Use Of It

Why extreme time management is important?

We studied how to teach Scouts how to make better use of their time as part of a national focus group of four National Distinguished Scoutmasters. We found out that in order to improve the time management skills of young Scouts, they need go beyond and focus on better planning and goals setting skills. We committed to test these ideas in our troops and to expand these ideas to others. We produced this presentation and we shared with Boy Scouts of America. We did presentations to our councils, districts, and troops and share these concepts. Beyond Scouting time management is also an issue.

Extreme time management is just a product of combining these ideas with different personal leadership and management skills. It is the process of searching in our personal beliefs, values, and priorities to be the person we want to be. It is about using management resources to master our time, our days, our life. Life is a finite number of years, months, weeks, and days. Every day is a new page in our journal. Let’s make each hour, minute, and second a great experience to remember. Life is a continuous learning adventure if you master your time.
