The Boy Scouts of America grew out of the international Scouting movement founded by Robert Baden-Powell in 1908. Chicago publisher W.D. Boyce was impressed by the popularity of Baden-Powell’s U.K.-based organization, and in 1910 formally created the Boy Scouts of America. Based on its initial mission to teach boys “patriotism, courage, self-reliance, and kindred values,” the Boy Scouts focused on these broad goals as learned through outdoor activities and hands-on life skills.
The national jamboree is held about every four years. In 1985, the 75th Anniversary of the Boy Scouts (referred to as the Diamond Jubilee), the national jamboree was hosted at Fort A.P. Hill, Virginia with the theme: “The Spirit Lives On”. About 32,000 scouts participated.
