Why Scouts BSA?

Scouting builds character and instills values for a lifetime.

Scouts BSA is the traditional Scouting experience for youth in the fifth grade through high school. Service, community engagement and leadership development become increasingly important parts of the program as youth lead their own activities and work their way toward earning Scouting’s highest rank, Eagle Scout.

“This decision is true to the BSA’s mission and core values outlined in the Scout Oath and Law. The values of Scouting – trustworthy, loyal, helpful, kind, brave and reverent, for example – are important for both young men and women,” said Michael Surbaugh, the BSA’s Chief Scout Executive. “We believe it is critical to evolve how our programs meet the needs of families interested in positive and lifelong experiences for their children. We strive to bring what our organization does best – developing character and leadership for young people – to as many families and youth as possible as we help shape the next generation of leaders.”


We are troop 402! One of the first all girl troops to join the Boy Scouts of America! We are a group of girls learning and growing together, and trying to make our mark in history! Everyone in this troop plays a role and learns skills not only needed in the wilderness, but in every other aspect of their life. We learn communication and leadership skills, and pride ourselves on our close knit community! Everyone is welcome and we would love to have you join us!    SCOUT LIKE A GIRL          Alexia Tzortzis - Senior Patrol Leader
