Visions of Scouting

In 1910, the Boy Scouts of America was founded to help young people grow into responsible, well-rounded citizens. As a result, more than 100 million Americans have experienced the traditional, values-based program offered by the BSA. Below, a celebrated American shares their thoughts on the Scouting experience:

“The Boy Scouts of America stands for a set of principles. These principles have a lot of staying power. The values you learn as a Scout are like a compass. They can help you find your way through difficult and sometimes unchartered terrain. The principles of Scouting give you a sense of what’s important. I feel I owe the Boy Scouts a great deal, both personally and professionally.”
Bill Bradley, former U.S. Senator, New Jersey

Campout Planning Committee

Saturday, November 22nd

11:00 am – 1:00 pm. 
​This meeting is for all ASPLs, Patrol Leaders, ASMs, and any adult who is willing to assist and attend the remaining campouts for the rest of the scout year (through June). We really need some adults to step up as we have limited resources; meaning not enough ASMs to maintain two deep leadership at the next few campouts. This life-affirming opportunity requires so little of your time -- approximately one hour per month. We really need your help to keep the campout program running strong! Location TBD.
