About Us

The BSA is a national organization that instills adventure, family, and character through scouting programs that helps place young people in the middle of action to prepare them to make ethical decisions for both today and throughout their lives. Founded in 1910, the BSA is one of the largest youth organization in the United States, with approximately 2.3 million youth participants and 1 million adult volunteers. In recent years, BSA has updated policies and programs to be more inclusive, and girls can participate in all programs at this time. The mission remains the same despite any policy changes—“to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetime by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.” The Scout Oath includes in order of responsibility: duty to God and country, duty to other people, and duty to self.

Grand Canyon Council is based in Scottsdale and is legally and financially independent of BSA and operates four camps in the state of Arizona that serve as outdoor learning laboratories for Scouts.
