Mission Statement

LaSalle Council Mission Statement

To develop in youth, character and values in a setting that emphasizes outdoor experiences.

BSA Mission Statement

The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

Scout Oath

On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my Country and to obey the Scout Law; To help other people at all times; To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.

Scout Law

A Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean and Reverent.


Scouting provides a structure for shared interests and activities between parents and children. For decades, millions of parents who encouraged their sons to participate in the Boy Scouts have taken pride in seeing their children mature into young people with the confidence to make positive choices and secure their future. LaSalle Council provides the Scouting program in northern Indiana and southwest Michigan through its professional staff, thousands of volunteer leaders and council-wide initiatives such as adult volunteer training and the operation of Council properties such as Camp Topenebee, Wood Lake Scout Reservation, Rice Woods, and the Council Service Center.

Now more than ever before, our youth, the community leaders of tomorrow, need to develop strong moral and ethical standards, citizenship proficiency, and life skills. Youth involved in Scouting will be prepared for life by key volunteer leadership and the following positive programs:

  1. Cub Scouts (grades 1-5) is a year-round program designed to meet the needs of young boys and their families through fun and challenging activities designed to promote education, character development, and physical fitness.
  2. Boy Scouts (ages 11 - 18) is an outdoor program created to develop character, citizenship, and fitness in young men by utilizing the educational focus of our advancement program
  3. Venturing (13-20) is a program for young men and women designed to help them grow into responsible and caring adults through educational and high adventure experiences.
  4. Learning for Life includes two programs. EXPLORING (ages 14-20) is a co-educational program that offers character and career education through role models and hands-on experience. IN-SCHOOL SCOUTING is an age and grade appropriate character education program designed to reinforce social, ethical, and academic skills in boys and girls.
