AIMS of the Boy Scouts Of America
Character

Boy Scouting works towards three aims. One is the growth in moral, strength and character. we may define this as what the boy is himself: his personal qualities, values and outlook

Citizenship

A second aim is participating citizenship. Used broadly, citizenship means the boy’s relationship to others. He comes to learn of his obligations to other people, to the society he lives and the government that presides over that society.

Fitness

A third aim of Boy Scouting is development of physical, mental and emotional fitness. Fitness includes the body (well-tuned and healthy). the mind (able to think and solve problems), and the emotions (self-control, courage and self-respect).
