Scout Oath and Law
The Boy Scouts of America is America’s most prominent values-based youth development organizations. The BSA program builds knowledge, experience, and character in young men, trains them in the responsibilities of participating in citizenship, and develops personal fitness.
For more than a hundred years, the Boy Scouts have helped build America’s future leaders by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The Boy Scouts of America strongly believes that helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society.
