The Boy Scouts of America was incorporated to provide a program for community organizations that offers effective character, citizenship, and personal fitness training for youth.
Specifically, the BSA endeavors to develop American citizens who are physically, mentally, and emotionally fit; have a high degree of self-reliance as evidenced in such qualities as initiative, courage, and resourcefulness; have personal values based on religious concepts; have the desire and skills to help others; understand the principles of the American social, economic, and governmental systems; are knowledgeable about and take pride in their American heritage and understand our nation’s role in the world; have a keen respect for the basic rights of all people; and are prepared to participate in and give leadership to American society.

People continue to come up to us a campouts and even when sitting in the parking lot at church and say how great it looks. Easily identifiable at campouts for the scouts to find their home base.
3. How has this grant helped support your mission?
Its message of promoting Scouting and its values and helps educate people on the mission of scouting – One more way to witness our Christian faith to the community (incomplete sentence).
