The Mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

Scout Oath (or Promise)

On my honor I will do my best 
To do my duty to God and my Country 
and to obey the Scout Law; 
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong, 
mentally awake, and morally straight. 

Scout Law

A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, 
courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty,
brave, clean, and reverent. 

Boy Scouts is available
 to boys who have earned the Arrow of Light Award and are at least 10 years old, or have completed the fifth grade and are at least 10, or who are 11, but not yet 18 years old.
