"Scouting for Boys"The Scouting movement was founded by Robert S.S. Baden-Powell in England in 1908.  "Scouting for Boys", the first book on the Scout Movement was published in 1908.

In 1909, Chicago publisher William D. Boyce lost his way in a dense London fog. A boy came to his aid and, after guiding the man, refused a tip, explaining that as a Scout he would not take a tip for doing a troop 7 logoGood Turn. This gesture by an unknown Scout inspired a meeting with Robert Baden-Powell.  As a result, William Boyce incorporated the Boy Scouts of America on February 8, 1910, which was chartered by the United States Congress in 1916. 

The Boy Scouts of America was incorporated to provide a program for community organizations that offers effective character building, citizenship and personal fitness training for youth. Specifically, the BSA endeavors to develop American citizens who are physically, mentally, and morally fit; have a high degree of self-reliance as evidenced in such qualities as initiative, courage, and resourcefulness: have personal values based on religious concepts; have the desire and skills to help others; understand the principle of the American social, economic, and governmental systems; are knowledgeable about and take pride in their American heritage and understand our nation's role in the world; have a keen respect for the basic rights of all people; are prepared to participate in and give leadership to American society.

The Scouting program has three specific objectives, commonly referred to as the "Aims of Scouting.'' They are character development, citizenship training and personal fitness.
