2013 Scouting Highlights

The Boy Scouts of America has since 1916 held a congressional charter under Title 36 of the United States Code. As part of fulfilling the obligations of that charter BSA delivers a recap of Scouting’s previous year to the United States Congress annually.

Here are some highlights of that report:

  1. Scouts camped a total of 6,093,410 nights during 2013.

  3. During 2013, Scouts across America recorded 17,042,938 hours of service to their communities.
  4. Put those hours of service against the national volunteer-hour value of $22.14 and that’s more than $377 million worth of service in 2013.
  5. Scouts and Scouters collected millions of pounds of food through Scouting for Food.
  6. More than 7,900 volunteers serve more than 19,750 youth annually on military bases around the world.
  7. 56,841 Scouts earned the rank of Eagle Scout in 2013.
  8. The BSA has awarded more than 100,000 Presidential Active Lifestyle Awards to Scouts completing a 60 day fitness challenge.
  9. The number of STEM-related merit badges was increased to 61.
  10. 1.1 million Scouts attended our high-adventure camps in New Mexico, Minnesota, and Florida, as well as thousands of our day and summer camps.

BSA’s Suffolk County Council Honors our Assistant Scoutmasters

[important]Let’s give a big hand to Assistant Scoutmaster Mr. Spear and Assistant Scoutmaster Mr. Locks

BSA’s Suffolk County Council has awarded them the Silver Beaver.[/important]



The Silver Beaver Award is the council-level distinguished service award of the Boy Scouts of America. Recipients of this award are registered adult leaders who have made an impact on the lives of youth through service given to the council.  The Silver Beaver is an award given to those who implement the Scouting program and perform community service through hard work, self-sacrifice, dedication, and many years of service. It is given to those who do not actively seek it.  The Silver Beaver award was first introduced in 1931..
