The Choctaw Area Council is a great little council in the heart of East Mississippi and West Alabama. Our impact on the youth around us, however, is no less than a larger council. As an arm of the Boy Scouts of America, our vision statement is "to prepare every eligible youth in America to become a responsible, participating citizen and leader who is guided by the Scout Oath and the Scout Law". The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is "to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law".
Scouting makes a difference that no other youth program has, can, or will. Please watch this video from one of our Eagle Scouts Robert Gates, Secretary of Defense. Mike Rowe, famous for the hit tv series "Dirty Jobs" also let's you know the importance of Scouting with his speech from the 2013 National Scout Jamboree.
The Scout Oath is...
On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.
The Scout Law is...
A Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean and Reverent.
