    BSA's Aims

    There are three aims to BSA Scouting:

    • To build character To build self-reliance, self-discipline, self-confidence and self-respect.
    • To foster citizenship To foster love of community, country and world, along with a commitment of service to others and an understanding of democratic principles.
    • To develop fitness To develop physical, mental, emotional, and moral fitness that will stay with a Scout for the rest of his life.

    These three aims are the bedrock of the American Scouting movement. They represent the long term outcomes we want for every boy.
