Attention Boys - Ages 6 – 20 and Girls Ages 14-20, you can be a scout!
What is Scouting?
Scouting is learning by discovery and discovery by doing. It’s fun, friends, and family. It’s a place where skills are learned, confidence is built, and stories are born. It’s about learning to work together, serving the community and understanding what it means to be a leader. That’s The Boy Scouts of America. It’s a place for your son unlike any other. You might call it life-changing. They’ll just call it fun.
Learn. Give. Succeed.
This is Scouting!
Sign up now and participate in our camps that include:
Camps, Hiking, Fishing, Archery, BBs, Sports and Games, Nature Studies, Swimming, Handicrafts and so much more!!!
We are so busy reading (and re-reading) the headlines to stop to think about what has been a great organization.
Boy Scouts not only promotes camping, cooking, hiking, learning cool stuff and hanging out with good friends. Boy scouts promotes citizenship, friendship, the environment, being reverent and many other "good old fashioned" things that our parents and their parents have tried to bestow on us.
Check us out at a nearby “Join Scouting Night” (or JSN in Scout speak)?
According to folks at the Boy Scout HQ - The purpose of the JSN is to "enroll prospective Tiger Cubs, Cub Scouts, Webelos Scouts into existing Cub Scout Packs and to enlist parent participation in the program." In layman's terms, any boy in grades 1 through 5 (ages 7 to 10) can join a pack.
From there, Boys 11 - 17 can join a troop and boys and girls 14 - 20 can be in the venturing program. More to follow on this or Google it up, you'll be pleased with the amount of information that awaits you.
How do you find us?
The entire Washington, DC metro area has hundreds of Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops and Venturing Crews available for Youth in the Area.
Are you an active adult?
Every scout unit has a need for adults. Believe me, you will be challenged and rewarded by participating with our youth. You have much to offer and you will have much to learn.
