Youth 11-17 years old
Scouts BSA is the traditional Scouting experience for youth in the fifth grade through high school. Service, community engagement and leadership development become increasingly important parts of the program as youth lead their own activities under the guidance of trained adult mentors and work their way toward earning Scouting’s highest rank, Eagle Scout.
Scouts BSA Outdoor Program
Outdoor adventure is the promise made to youth when they join Scouting. Youth yearn for outdoor programs that stir their imagination and interest.
Summer camp is what many Scouts enjoy most. Camp programs provide numerous opportunities for Scouts to earn merit badges along their advancement trail. Anthony Wayne Area Council hosts Boy Scout Summer Camp at Anthony Wayne Scout Reservation, Camp Chief Little Turtle. For complete information about the fantastic program at CCLT, click here.
Districts plan camporees and other outings during the year that give Scouts an opportunity to test their knowledge and skills in competitive events with other troops and patrols. See the calendar or individual district page for more information!

National High Adventure Bases
The BSA operates national high-adventure bases and programs. With two locations in the Florida Keys, the Florida National High Adventure Sea Base offers a variety of aquatic and boating programs. The Northern Tier National High Adventure Program, based in northern Minnesota with two satellite bases in Canada, provides a variety of canoe treks and programs. Philmont Scout Ranch in the mountains of New Mexico provides excellent backpacking treks. Age requirements for these programs vary, but most programs are rugged and designed for older Scouts.
