Our Mission and Purpose

Some of the best things in Scout life happen at the Unit. Whether your Scout is attending a meeting, prefers indoor adventures, or longs for outdoor activities, we have a program for all Scouts.

Our mission is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetime by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law. Our purpose is to help young people, and adults alike, in Louisa, Virginia make a positive impact in our community.

So, what is the Scout Oath and Scout Law? Glad you asked!

Scout Oath

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.

Scout Law

The Scout Law has 12 points. Each is a goal for every Scout. A Scout tries to live up to the Law every day. It is not always easy to do, but a Scout always tries.


“I strongly believe that being a leader in scouts has made me a better person, and I have learned as much from the scouts as they learn from me (if not more). 

“Scouting is an unparalleled opportunity for youth to learn in a safe environment.  My favorite thing about scouting is the focus on the outdoors (Camping, Hiking, Cooking and Conservation are huge parts of the Scouting experience).”

~Mr. Steve Brown, Pack 183 Cubmaster


“Pack 183 has been great way for our family to become more involved in our community and hopefully help make some happy memories for our youth, will having lots of fun along the way.”

~Mr. Conor Murphy, Pack 183 Assistant Cubmaster
