What is Scouts BSA?

For the first time in its 100+ year history, the iconic program of the Boy Scouts of America  was opened to young women as of February 1, 2019. Scouts BSA is a year-round program for boys and girls in fifth grade through high school that provides fun, adventure, learning, challenge, and responsibility to help them become the best version of themselves.

In Scouts BSA, young men and women go places, test themselves, and have one-of-a-kind adventures that can’t be found anywhere else.
