Support Scouting through Friends of Scouting

Scouting and the Church

Scouting can help young men and boys enhance close relationships with their families and the Church while developing strong and desirable traits of character, citizenship, and physical and mental fitness.

Under priesthood leadership, Scouting complements the efforts of Aaronic Priesthood quorums and Primary classes in building testimonies in young men and boys.

As an extension of the home, Primary classes, and Aaronic Priesthood quorums Scouting functions as part of the Church’s activity program for boys and young men.
