Scouting was founded by Lord Robert Stephenson Smith Baden-Powell as an institution of preparing our scouts to the different challenges that they could encounter in their life and as means of molding them to become reliable citizens in the future.

      The Boy Scouts of the Philippines (BSP) are the official National Scout Organization (NSO) assigned in our country as the direct branch of the World Organization of Scouting Movement (WOSM). The BSP formulates different scouting programs and trainings to the different scouting sections for the fulfillment of the association’s aim in molding our scouts as the next citizens in our country and inculcating the value of service in the community.

In recognition of the scout’s fulfillment of the different programs and trainings and inculcating the scout Oath and Law in their life as they interact with their community, the Eagle Scout award was formulated. The award is the most coveted achievement of the seniors scouts throughout the country and achieving such award is not an easy task.
