The best resource for information is on the LDS – BSA Relations Web site – www.LDSBSA.org, as well as on www.LDS.org where the latest copy of Scouting in the Church (the Green Book) is located.

There are specific steps for new leaders as well as blogs, updates, and a wealth of information to assist LDS leaders in fulfilling their calling.

“There is no religious side to the Movement. The whole of it is based on religion, that is, on the realization and service of God.”  Lord Baden-Powell

“The promise of the Scout Oath and the twelve points of Scout Law prepare young men for the 21st century.”  President Gordon B. Hinckley

“Scouting is an excellent program which develops character in young men. I am grateful for the influence of Scouting in my life and the lives of my sons and grandsons.”  President James E. Faust

“Scouting adds adventure to quorum programs.”  Thane J. Packer

Why God Made Boys

“I need someone to stand
On top of the mountains, to conquer the seas,
Explore the plains and climb the trees
Someone to start out small and grow,
Sturdy, strong like a tree and so…
He created boys, full of spirit and fun,
With dirty faces, banged up chins
With courageous hearts and boyish grins.”
When He had completed the task He’d begun
He secretly said, “That’s a job well done.”
