Boy Scouts

Boy Scouting is for boys who are at least 11 years old, or have completed the fifth grade, to 17 years old. In Boy Scouting, boys, families, and adult leaders work together to achieve the objectives of character development, citizenship training, and personal fitness. Among other methods, Scouting uses an outdoor program and an advancement program to help achieve these objectives.

Boy Scouts are assigned to patrols, which are groups of five to eight boys. Patrols elect their own leader and typically camp together on outings and do all the planning and preparation for those outings together as well.

All patrols are part of the Troop. Troops usually meet weekly for an hour or two in a facility provided by the church or other organization which sponsors the Troop.
