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 participating citizenship, and develops
personal fitness.

For over 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 over a century of
experience, knows — that helping youth is a key to
building a more conscientious, responsible, and
productive society.

There are currently 855,000 Boy Scouts and 485,000 adult
volunteers in the United States. While there is guidance
from experienced leaders, Boy Scouts take their own
lead, exploring places they've never been as they dive
into the rugged world of outdoor adventure. With a spirit
of teamwork, they pack up their Scout gear and their
sense of adventure, and dive into the learning and
excitement that comes from being in the brotherhood of
the Boy Scouts.

Since 1929, Boy Scout Troop 22, sponsored by the Holy
Name Society of St. Francis Catholic Church, has been
working to prepare young people to make ethical and
moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the
values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law. Today,
hundreds of men can look back on their participation in
the Scouting program here and know that they were
given unique, life-changing experiences that youth simply
can’t get anywhere else.

The Troop 22 Boy Scout program is open all young men
in the Quincy area who are ages 11 through 17 -
regardless of where they live or their church or school
affiliation.  In other words, if a young man wants to be a
part of our Scouting program, we want him to be.
