Boy Scouts - Heart Of America Council


The Boy Scouts of America (BSA), was incorporated on February 8, 1910, and chartered by Congress in 1916. Its purpose is to provide for boys and young adults an effective educational program designed to build desirable qualities of character, to train in the responsibilities of participating citizenship and to develop in them personal fitness. Community groups such as religious, educational, civic, fraternal, business, labor, governmental bodies, corporations, professional associations, and groups of citizens who have compatible goals and utilize the program provided accomplish the purpose by the Boy Scouts of America on the local level.

Mission Statement

It is the mission of the Heart of America Council, Boy Scouts of America, to prepare the young people of eastern Kansas and western Missouri to make ethical choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law.

Vision Statement

The vision of the Heart of America Council is to accomplish our mission statement in such an exemplary manner as to be recognized by our public as the premier youth organization in the communities we serve. In addition, we want to be recognized by other BSA councils and the National Council as second to none in all endeavors, and setting the standard in all measurable items.
