Laurel Highlands Council Boy Scouts of America

Mission

To prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

Programs and Services

  • Cub Scouts - The Cub Scout program is a fun and educational experience concerned with fostering values. Besides providing a positive place where youth can enjoy safe, wholesome activities, Cub Scouting focuses on building character, improving physical fitness, teaching practical skills, and developing a spirit of community service.
  • Boy Scouts - Boy Scouting is one of the traditional membership divisions of the Boy Scouts of America. Boy Scouting is a program of fun outdoor activities, peer group leadership opportunities, and a personal exploration of career, hobby and special interests, all designed to achieve the BSA’s objectives of strengthening character, personal fitness, and good citizenship.
  • Trailblazers - The basic premise of Scouting for youth with disabilities and special needs is that they want most to participate like other youth—and Scouting gives them that opportunity. Thus, much of the Trailblazers program is directed at helping unit leaders develop an awareness of disabled people among youth without disabilities and encouraging the inclusion of Scouts with disabilities and special needs.
  • Scoutreach - The Scoutreach Division gives special leadership and emphasis to urban and rural Scouting programs. Scoutreach is the BSA’s commitment to making sure that all young people have an opportunity to join Scouting, regardless of their circumstances, neighborhood, or ethnic background. Our biggest asset in urban and rural neighborhoods is a well-defined program based on values, learning by doing, fun, and positive role models.
  • Cub Scouts 1-2-3 - The Cub Scouts 1-2-3 program is an initiative that engages at-risk boys in enriching discussions and activities that foster skills acquisition, teamwork, and problem solving. The purpose of the program is to reduce boys’ (grades 1-5) vulnerabilities to the challenges posed by growing up in at-risk communities.
