Your Scouting adventure starts here. Cub Scouting is all about building confidence, communications and peer interaction skills in a fun and engaging small group environment.
Step up your outdoor skills and learn lifelong leadership skills while challenging your body and mind through physical outdoor activities. Give back to your community while earning rank and demonstrating responsibility through leading and mentoring others.
Explore your passions, make new friends and plan your adventures in a youth-led, co-ed Crew. Build your leadership, event-planning, organization and communications skills. Rappel. Shoot the rapids. Hit the backcountry. Volunteer and serve others. The choice is yours!
Exploring provides exciting activities and one-on-one mentorship for youth looking to discover their future. Whether you’re a local organization looking to strengthen the community or a young person wanting to uncover the possibilities of your future, Exploring is a great place to start.

Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM)
STEM is part of an initiative the Boy Scouts of America has taken on to encourage the natural curiosity of youth members and their sense of wonder about these fields through existing programs. From archery to welding, Scouts can't help but enjoy the wide range of STEM-related activities. To support this initiative, the BSA developed the Nova Awards Program so that youth members have fun and receive recognition for their efforts. Go ahead, dive in - build, invent, innovate and explore our STEM programs and activities.
