The Boy Scouts of America is the largest youth oriented organization in
the United States.  More than 4 million young people and leaders are
currently registered in the Boy Scouts of America.

Unlike Cub Scouting, which many of you are familiar with, Boy Scouting
is a youth-lead organization.  The boys learn how to organize and lead
the Troop.  After training, and with adult supervision, the boys run the
show.
The boys in the Troop will be working towards their 1st class and then
Eagle ranks.  As they travel on their trail to Eagle and beyond, they
will not only learn how   to lead a team to a goal, they will  lead teams
of Scouts in a number of challenging situations.

Boy Scouting also provides for growth of moral strength and character,
teaches citizenship, and enhances the development of physical, mental
and emotional fitness.  This is all done in the spirit of fun and
adventure.

Please take a few minutes to read Chapter One of your son's Boy Scout
Handbook.

For families to achieve the full benefit from the program, parents
should realize that Scouting is as educational as sitting in a
classroom.
