Boy Scouts of America

The Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts (Scouts) are chartered by the Hong Kong International School and rely solely on parent volunteers to provide leadership and support to their programs.

The Scouts embrace the values of citizenship, compassion, cooperation, courage, faith, health and fitness, honesty, perseverance, positive attitude, resourcefulness, respect, and responsibility. These values come to boys and girls in all parts of the Scouts programs - all while having a great time with their friends and families.

BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA (BSA) TROOP 1, HONG KONG

Boy Scouts is for boys aged 11 through 18.

Scouting in Hong Kong is an adventure! There is a surprising amount of rugged wilderness just one hour's travel from town. Each month we have one or two outdoor activities that can include backpacking, hiking, kayaking and climbing as well as camping.

We are a boy-led Troop and provide Scouts with the opportunity to learn, develop and practice leadership and life skills that will serve them well for a lifetime. We place an emphasis on developing character, citizenship and physical fitness in a positive and fun environment. The boys organize and participate in several Community Service projects during the year.

Through the Merit Badge program, Scouting also provides the opportunity to explore and gain hands-on experience in a wide variety of careers-such as: law, medicine, engineering, aviation, business, architecture, theater, journalism and many more.

We welcome and encourage active parent involvement in all phases of the program.

Weekly or bi-weekly patrol meetings are held and

Cub Scouts of America

Cub Scouting is the first phase of the Boy Scouts of America organization, and feeds into the Boy Scouts. It is a program for boys, from 1st through 5th grade, managed completely by parent volunteers.

Scouting is a great way to build character, citizenship and fitness. It’s an opportunity for parents to teach their young Cub Scout all the values they wish to instill through practice and real life experiences, while building memories together.

Our Cub Scouting program provides opportunities for all young members to exercise leadership skills, help the community, experience the great outdoors and explore teamwork and sportsmanship.

Our ranks are divided by Lower Primary grades as follows:

Grade 1 - Tiger Cubs

Grade 2 - Wolf Cubs

Grade 3 - Bear Cubs

Grade 4 - Webelos I

Grade 5 - Webelos II

Boys are grouped into Dens of 8 - 10 scouts per rank. The Cub scouts and their leaders meet twice a month on average for a planned activity or outing with their den following in order to fulfill requirements for merit awards. In addition, all Cub Scouts Dens meet as a Pack once a month.

What we do as a Pack

• Monthly meetings for community building and communication

• Activities in over 30 different sports and academic areas

• Awards and recognition for advancement

• Annual overnight father/son camp out

• Community Service Projects (i.e. Beach cleanup, food drive)
