Welcome to scouting in Stamford

  • Scouting is for BOYS AND GIRLS, between ages 5 and 17.
  • As a parent, you want your child to grow up to be a self-reliant, dependable and caring individual. Scouting has these same goals in mind.
  • Since 1910, we have been weaving lifetime values into fun and educational activities designed to assist parents in strengthening leadership, character, good citizenship, and physical fitness for youth.
  • Scouting is about positive youth development. However, we know that kids do not join Scouting to get their character built. They join because it is fun! Your time is valuable.
  • Scouting helps to support your family by providing ready-made adventures and activities for you and your child to enjoy together.
  • Your child needs comradery with their peers. With an emphasis on fostering friendships, kids will build self-esteem and learn to get along with others. As a parent, you want to be assured that the groups your child joins will teach values consistent with good citizenship, character development, and physical fitness in a safe environment. Scouting teaches family values and works to strengthen your relationship with your child.
  • Scouting activities can provide added value to the time you have with your child. It also provides activities for the whole family to enjoy.

The antidote to screens, game controllers, phones and boredom
