The Golden Empire Council of the Boy Scouts of America pursues the mission of this national organization to “instill values in young people and prepare them to make ethical choices during their lifetimes, to take leadership roles as adults, and to reach their full potential.”

Through its programs, the Golden Empire Council offers young people responsible fun and adventure, while instilling values and helping them develop an ethical character, as expressed in the Scout Oath and Law. Participants are trained in citizenship, service, and leadership.
