Boy Scouts of America is a youth development program that allows boys from the ages of 10-18 to develop practical life and outdoors skills. The program progresses from Scout, Tenderfoot, Second Class, First Class, Star, Life to Eagle.
Scouts participate in many camping trips together where they learn important life and outdoors skills. Scouts also earn "merit badges" for completion of programs or life skills. Boy Scouts also focuses on important initiatives like anti-drug and anti-bullying programs.
