 Be Prepared: Boys Scouts of America

January 22 – April 10, 2011

This exhibition pays tribute to the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), one of the largest youth organizations in the United States, with over 4.5 million youth members.  Since 1910, more than 110 million Americans have been members of the BSA.  The BSA 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.
