Traditional Scouting Programs

York-Adams Area Council's principal responsibility is to provide support to its chartered organizations and their Scouting units.  To learn more about any of the programs shown below, click on any of the program logos shown below. 

Tiger Cubs - is for first grade boys.

Tiger Cubs have been members of Cub Scout packs for years, but the Tiger Cub program has had a whole new look since 2001, while keeping its most important elements.  A new advancement plan has been added to create additional challenges and excitement for first-grade boys.

The Tiger Cub program is still a fun-filled, age-appropriate introduction to Cub Scouting.  Tiger Cubs still participate along with an adult partner, and those adult partners share leadership in the Tiger Cub den.  More ...

Cub Scouts - is for boys in the second through fifth grades.

In 1930, the Boy Scouts of America launched a home- and neighborhood-centered program for boys 9 to 11 years of age. A key element of the program is an emphasis on caring, nurturing relationships between boys and their parents, adult leaders, and friends.

Currently, Cub Scouting is the largest of the BSA's three membership divisions. (The others are Boy Scouting and Venturing.)  More ...

Boy Scouts - is for boys who have graduated the fifth grade or age 11 through 17.

Boy Scouting is available to boys who have earned the Arrow of Light Award or have completed the fifth grade, or who are 11 through 17 years old, and subscribe to the Scout Oath and Law.

The program achieves the BSA's objectives of developing character, citizenship, and personal fitness qualities among youth by focusing on a vigorous program of outdoor activities.  More ...

Varsity Scouting - is a program for young men who are at least 14 years of age but not yet 18.

Varsity Scouting provides options for young men who are looking for rugged high adventure or challenging sporting activities and still want to be a part of a Scouting program that offers the advancement and values of the Boy Scouts of America.  More ...

Venturing - is for young men and women ages 14-20.

Venturing's purpose is to provide positive experiences to help young people mature and to prepare them to become responsible and caring adults.

Venturing is based on a unique and dynamic relationship between youth, adult leaders, and organizations in their communities. Local community organizations establish a Venturing crew by matching their people and program resources to the interests of young people in the community. The result is a program of exciting and meaningful activities that helps youth pursue their special interests, to grow, to develop leadership skills, and to become good citizens.

Venturing crews can specialize in a variety of avocation or hobby interests.  More ...
