Welcome to Boy Scout Troop 849!

What is Boy Scouting?

Lord Baden-Powell Boy Scouting is the original program of the Boy Scouts of America which was officially organized in1910. Boy Scouting in America is directly based on a program conceived of and designed by Lord Robert S.S. Baden-Powell in 1907. Lord Baden-Powell took a diverse group of young men on a camping trip to Brown Sea Island off the English coast in 1907 to test his ideas and theories, and from that experiment, the Scouting movement was born. Almost 100 years later, the mission of the Boy Scouts of America, the aims of the Boy Scout program, and the methods used to achieve those aims have remained the same.  Scouting is available to boys who have earned the Arrow of Light Award and are at least 10 years old or have completed the fifth grade and are at least 10, or who are 11, but not yet 18 years old.


The Mission of the Boy Scouts of America

The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical choices over their lifetime by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
