A Handbook for the Past and the Future
You hold in your hands a century of Scouting. In addition to being a reference for
the youth of Scouting’s second century, this 12th edition of the Boy Scout Handbook
also honors the heritage of Scouts who came before you. It combines art from
previous editions with modern illustrations, photographs, and information.

As you browse through this app, take note of the elements that make it special.
– Quotes from past and present BSA leaders and literature will inspire you and remind you that Scouting’s values are timeless.
