The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation's largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of citizenship, and helps develop personal fitness.
For nearly a century, the BSA has helped build the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The Boy Scouts of America believes (and, through nearly a century of experience, knows) that helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society.
Scouting is a great way for a boy to get to know his classmates as well as boys in other grades that share a deep desire to have fun. If your son has a sense of adventure or is interested in sports or academics, there is something for him in this program.
Here's some information about our local Edgerton group:
Edgerton's Cub Scouts (boys in grades 1-5) are Pack 167
Edgerton's Boy Scouts (boys in grades 6-11) are Troop 167

They meet the 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month at 6:30pm at Runals Memorial Hall
A few of their fun activities have been soap carving, pinewood derby racing, camping, fishing, making homemade ice-cream and swimming.
