General Information
Description of ServiceOffers scouting opportunities for boys, young men and women on five different levels:
- Tiger Cubs: A one-year, family-centered program for first grade boys and one or more adult family members. True to its motto: "Search, discover, share," this program stresses fun activities and strengthening family bonds while helping children build confidence and self-esteem.
- Cub Scouts: A family-centered program for boys in second through fifth grade. This program capitalizes on a boy's natural interests which fosters self-esteem and teaches cooperation and the meaning of healthy competition through sports, games, crafts, skill building, recognition, camping and fun.
- Boy Scouts: A troop and patrol-centered program for boys in sixth grade through senior high school. This program builds self-esteem, resourcefulness, and leadership skills through a blend of outdoor experiences, educational and instructional skills, recognition, value building and fun.

- Exploring: A unique and flexible co-ed program for young men and women, 14 through 20 years of age. Its aim is to help youth make intelligent decisions about their future by giving them in-depth exposure to a variety of careers.
