Mission Statement

The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

Organization History

In 1909, a Chicago publisher by the name of W.D. Boyce lost his way on a foggy day during a business trip in London. He was aided by a young boy, who he then offered a tip to for his help. The young boy refused his tip and explained that it was his "Good Turn." As a result of this experience, W.D. Boyce was so moved that he brought the idea of Scouting to the United States and incorporated the Boy Scouts of America in February, 1910. The Pikes Peak Council was incorporated 6 years later in 1916, with the express purpose of providing Scouting programs to the young people of its territory. In the almost 100 year history of the Pikes Peak Council, life-changing experiences have been provided to thousands of youth. Although, Scouting has changed drastically over time, many of the core values that it was founded on are still in place today. Developing citizenship, physical fitness and character development are the three tenants of Scouting that have endured time and continue to be actively taught in our program.
