Boys of all ages can sign up for Boy Scouts of America this Thursday and receive a free model rocket.
Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is inviting families across Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana to register Sept. 15 at a local school. Each new Scout will receive a free model rocket to build and launch with their whole family at an upcoming Adventure Day.
BSA’s programs are tailored to two age groups. Cub Scouts is geared toward boys ages 7 to 10 years old or in grades 1 through 5, and Boy Scouts is designed for boys and young men ages 11 to 17.
As an organization, Boy Scouts of America has more than one hundred years of history and is incorporating more science, technology, and engineering-based initiatives into its programs. Presenting new families with their own rockets and providing a platform to launch them is one way to incorporate its new innovative programs.
Thousands of BSA parent volunteers will be at local elementary and middle schools after school on September 15th to answer questions, register new Scouts and hand out the free model rockets. It costs $32 to join, which covers a boy’s membership from now through December 2017. Parents also have the option to save the trip to school and register online anytime on or before Sept. 15.
Interested families should visit www.BlastIntoScouting.org to learn more, find a local participating school or register online.
