Boy Scouts, or more formally known as the Boy Scouts of America, was one of the largest youth organizations in the United States. Founded in 1910 as part of the international Scout Movement, its goal was 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.
The Scout method was part of the program for younger members, used to instill typical Scouting values such as trustworthiness, good citizenship, and outdoors skills, through a variety of activities such as camping, aquatics, and hiking. Every Boy Scout troop had a Scout Master and a group of Boy Scouts. They would go on trips occasionally, as seen by the crashed scout bus.
It appears that there are people post-Great War who knew about them, as Joshua Graham told Follows-Chalk about the Scouts on the crashed bus, though Follows-Chalk thought he was talking about Dead Horse scouts such as himself. By the time the Great War had happened, they were spread out across America; their fate post-Great War is unknown. Boy Scout uniforms can be found in the Capital Wasteland and the Mojave Wasteland[verification needed].
