The Boy Scouts of the Virgin Islands are
part of a worldwide organization for youth
aged 7 to 20 years old. Scouting is divided into
age-divided groups: Tiger Cubs are first-grade
students. Cub Scouts span the grades two
through five, while Boy Scouts are made
up of 6th graders through seniors in high
school. Explorer Posts and Venture Crews are co-ed, at the
high school level and encompass many kids
who had never been a scout at a younger
Scouting troops are organized and supervised
by leaders from local community groups
like schools, churches and service organization
that in turn receive guidance and assistance
from the local Boy Scout Council.
The Council offers scouting programs on all three US Virgin Islands and it owns and operates the beautiful 19 acre 'Howard M. Wall' Scout Camp on St. Croix where facilities include a state of the art climbing tower with a ropes course and central pavilion for shelter. The site supports a rifle range and has access to a beach for an array of water sports opportunities.
