It’s time to look back on how we’ve grown as an organization this year. In 2018, we saw a lot of changes, inspirational stories, and commitment to the Scouting program. We’d like to reflect on this year to share with the Scouting community things they may have missed or things they’d like to be reminded of. Here is the most creative, most inspirational, and most improved for the year.

Big Changes for The Boy Scouts of America

The Boy Scouts of America is going through many changes with the reintroduction of young women to the Scouting program and the recently launched ‘Scout Me In’ campaign. Keep up to date on these new changes and how they are affecting your unit.
