In 2019, 108 years later, Scouting remains strong. As in any organization, Scouting has had to face challenges, but rose above them all and continues to be a vibrant youth organization. People have many different thoughts as to why the BSA has survived and thrived for 108 years……my personal thoughts are that the BSA provides to our youth exactly what they need to become successful adults and leaders. These needs are clearly stated in the Scout Oath and Law, which follows – just in case you need a refresher course.
“On my honor, I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country, to obey the Scout Law, to help other people at all times, to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.”
