Varsity Scouting Program turns 30 years old
This year marks the thirtieth year of the Varsity Scout Program. Varsity Scouting was officially adopted by the BSA in 1984. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints officially endorsed the program on September 23, 1983.
Varsity Scouting is part of the Boy Scouting program of the BSA. It is an alternative available to boys ages fourteen to eighteen that takes the basic Boy Scouting program and adds high adventure, sporting, and other elements that are more appealing to older youth to accomplish the aims of character development, citizenship training, and personal fitness. Varsity Scouts are organized into teams, which are separate chartered units from a Boy Scout troop. Varsity Scouts may participate in the BSA advancement system for troops and also have their own recognitions.
Garden State Council has one Varsity Team in it's boundaries. Team 7093 is chartered by the Sewell Ward; Cherry Hill Stake; of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The Team celebrates it's twentieth year of activity.
