Red Wing Area BSA Scouting consists of Scouts BSA Troop 32 for boys ages 11-17, Troop 320 for girls ages 11-17, and Cub Scouts Pack 32 for all kids K-5th grade.
We meet every Monday throughout the school year at 7:00pm at the Red Wing First Presbyterian Church.
We are outdoor focused and enjoy backpacking, bicycling, canoeing, snow sports, hiking, river rafting, summer camp and a whole lot of other outdoor activities. We are also service oriented, participating in several community service projects throughout the year.
The BSA programs promote youth leadership, character, rank advancement, participation in meaningful outdoor activities, service to the community and most of all, having fun while doing it.
Joining us is very easy and can be done any time of year. Come by any of our regular meetings, check us out, ask questions, get a feel for our troop/pack and then ask for an application or join online.
About Boy Scouts of America
The Boy Scouts of America (the BSA) is one of the largest Scouting organizations in the United States of America and one of the largest youth organizations in the United States, with more than 2.4 million youth participants and nearly one million adult volunteers. The BSA was founded in 1910, and since then, more than 110 million Americans have been participants in BSA programs at some time. The BSA is part of the international Scout Movement and became a founding member organization of the World Organization of the Scout Movement in 1922.
The BSA’s goal is to train youth in responsible citizenship, character development, and self-reliance through participation in a wide range of outdoor activities, educational programs, and, at older age levels, career-oriented programs in partnership with community organizations. For younger members, the Scout method is part of the program to instill typical Scouting values such as trustworthiness, good citizenship, and outdoors skills, through a variety of activities such as camping, aquatics, and hiking. In order to further these outdoor activities, the BSA has four high-adventure bases: Northern Tier (Minnesota, Manitoba, and Ontario), Philmont Scout Ranch (New Mexico), Sea Base (Florida), and Summit Bechtel Reserve (West Virginia).
The traditional Scouting divisions are Cub Scouting for children in grades K-5, Scouts BSA for youth ages 11 to 17 and Venturing and Sea Scouting for young men and women ages 14 (or 13 and having completed the 8th grade) to 20.
The BSA operates traditional Scouting by chartering local organizations, such as churches, clubs, civic associations, or educational organization, to implement the Scouting program for youth within their communities. Units are led entirely by volunteers appointed by the chartering organization, who are supported by local councils using both paid professional Scouters and volunteers.
