More Information on BSA Programs
Cub Scouting
Cub Scouts is a year-round family- and home-centered program for boys in the first through fifth grade (or who are 7 - 10 years old). The Tiger Cub program for first graders and their adult partners emphasizes shared leadership, community, and family. The Wolf and Bear Cub activities for second and third graders emphasize character development, citizenship, and personal fitness. Webelos Scouts (fourth and fifth graders) participate in more advanced activities to prepare for Boy Scouts. All Cub Scouts can earn Belt Loops and attend Day Camp. Wolf, Bear, and Webelos Scouts can also attend Cub Scout Resident Camp.
Boy Scouting
Boy Scouts is a year-round program for boys 11 through 17 featuring outdoor programs and leadership. Boy Scouts can earn ranks, Merit Badges, and awards.
Varsity Scouting
Varsity Scouting is an active, exciting, year-round program for young men 14 through 17 built around five program fields of emphasis: advancement, high-adventure/sports, personal development, service, and special programs and events.
Venturing
Venturing is a year-round program for young men and women who are 14 (and have completed the eighth grade) through 20 years of age to provide positive experiences through exciting and meaningful youth-run activities that help them pursue their special interests, grow by teaching others, and develop leadership skills.
Sea Scouting
Sea Scouts is a specialized segment of the Venturing program, which was organized to address members' boating skills and promote knowledge of our maritime heritage. Swimming, lifesaving, first aid, Coast Guard Auxiliary Sailing and Seamanship, and cardiopulmonary resuscitation courses are taught with the ship by its officers.
