Can Packs, Troops, Teams, or Crews Participate in Political Rallies?


The Boy Scouts of America might be the most patriotic organization in the U.S.

But don’t take that to mean we endorse any one political party. The same applies to packs, troops, teams, and crews. Scouts and volunteers should do their duty to country, but not by endorsing any one candidate.

During election years, though, the line between patriotism and political favoritism becomes thin, making it important to remind you of the BSA’s official policy on Scout participation in political rallies.
