Scouting units run the best program possible when they have well-rounded dens, patrols and crews. The future of units depends on incoming youth as naturally each year current youth age out of the program or move out of the area. Scouting is the premier program for character education, and it is part of the Boy Scouts of America’s mission to make sure that this program is shared  with as many youth as possible.
