Boy Scouts is tailored to boys 11-17 years old. This year-round program emphasizes vigorous outdoor activities, and developing leadership skills and teamwork all under the guidance of an adult Scoutmaster.
Any boy between the ages of 11 and 17 may join the Boy Scouts at any time! Boys already enrolled in the Cub Scout program as Arrow of Light Scouts may become Boy Scouts when they have earned the Arrow of Light Award.

BIG CHANGE COMING TO BOY SCOUTS!
As of February 2019, the Boy Scouting program of the Boy Scouts of America will be renamed Scouts BSA as girls are welcomed into this aspect of the program for the first time. Girls will be able to join all girl troops and enjoy the same program, including earning all of the same ranks and merit badges in that program. Stay tuned for more information!
