Appleton Boy Scouts of America

The Boy Scouts of America is one of the largest youth organizations in the United States. Appleton has a strong scout program. Youth in the area can find a great troop and council to attend.

The BSA goal is to train youth to be responsible citizens while developing a great character and self-reliance. Activities consist of outdoor activities, educational programs, career-oriented experience, leadership opportunities, and many other personal growth events.

The Boy Scouts was founded in 1907 by British General Robert Baden-Powell with the goal to help young men become responsible and self sufficient. A man, W. D. Boyce, encountered an 'unknown scout' and learned of the scouting movement. Shortly after the movement gained momentum and began to expand.

Appleton scouts can begin in Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts or the Venture program depending on their age. Contact the local scout chapter to find your troop and begin.
