The traditional Scouting divisions are Cub Scouting for boys ages 7 to 10½ years, Boy Scouting for boys ages 10½ to 18 and Venturing for young men and women ages 14 (or 13 and having completed the 8th grade) through 21.
The BSA is a constituent member of the World Organization of the Scout Movement.With the migration of families from farms to cities, there were concerns among some people that young men were no longer learning patriotism and individualism.The YMCA was an early promoter of reforms for young men with a focus on social welfare and programs of mental, physical, social and religious development.The boy then refused Boyce's tip, explaining that he was a Boy Scout and was merely doing his daily good turn.
Interested in the Boy Scouts, Boyce met with staff at the Boy Scouts Headquarters and, by some accounts, Baden-Powell. Hanmer became interested in the nascent BSA and convinced Boyce to turn the program over to the YMCA for development in April 1910.Upon his return to the US, Boyce incorporated the Boy Scouts of America on February 8, 1910. Robinson enlisted Seton, Beard, Charles Eastman, and other prominent leaders in the early youth movements.
