Geocache Description:

The purpose of this cache is to teach everyone a little about the BSA and the "Power" that scouting brings to the youth and communities of America! I Don't like to put too much writing on a cache page because I don't like to spend so much time reading the page but in this instance it's all about the information written on this page.
You will need some of the information on this page to open the cache.

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is one of the largest youth organizations in the United States, with 2.7 million youth members and over 1 million adult volunteers. Since its founding in 1910 as part of the international Scout Movement, more than 110 million Americans have been members of the BSA.

The BSA goal is to train youth in responsible citizenship, character development, and self-reliance through participation in a wide range of outdoor activities, educational programs, and, at older age levels, career-oriented programs in partnership with community organizations. For younger members, the Scout method is part of the program to inculcate typical Scouting values such as trustworthiness, good citizenship, and outdoors skills, through a variety of activities such as camping, aquatics, and hiking.

There are three divisions of scouting,

Cub Scouting for boys ages 7 to 10½ years,
Boy Scouting for boys ages 10½ to 18,
Venturing for young men and women ages 14 (or 13 and have completed the 8th grade) through 21.

The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law.

Scout Oath:
On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.

Scout Law:
A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.
