What is Scouts BSA?
Scouts BSA is a year-round program for youth 11-17 years old that provides fun, adventure, learning, challenge, and responsibility to help them become the best version of themselves.
For the first time in its 100+ year history, the iconic program of the Boy Scouts of America is open to young women as well as young men, all of whom will have the chance to earn Scouting’s highest rank, Eagle Scout.
In Scouts BSA, young men and women go places, test themselves, and have one-of-a-kind adventures that can’t be found anywhere else.
Spring & Fall
Camporee activities challenge Scouts in a variety of areas and levels of expertise. The events are designed to build teamwork and strengthen Scout skills that will benefit them as they advance through their Scouting careers.
ORDER OF THE ARROW
The Order of the Arrow (OA) was founded by Dr. E. Urner Goodman and Carroll A. Edson in 1915 at the Treasure Island Camp of the Philadelphia Council, Boy Scouts of America. It became an official program experiment in 1922 and was approved as part of the Scouting program in 1934. In 1948, the OA was recognized as the BSA's national brotherhood of honor campers and became an official part of the national camping program of the Boy Scouts of America. Today, the OA is recognized as Scouting's National Honor Society.
In 1939, our local OA lodge was formed.

NATIONAL EAGLE SCOUT ASSOCIATION
The National Eagle Scout Association, NESA, is a fellowship of men who have achieved the Eagle Scout rank. The purpose of NESA is to identify local Eagle Scouts than can provide a manpower resource for our local council.
NESA offers dozens of scholarships each year.
