Reminder: The Scouter Code of Conduct and BSA Rules & Regulations on the Policy Concerning Political Questions 

A reminder that, as you receive questions from politicians running for office.  Please refer to the applicable sections of the Scouter Code of Conduct and the BSA Rules & Regulations. 

Applicable section of the Scouter Code of Conduct

I will respect and abide by the Rules and Regulations of the Boy Scouts of America, BSA policies, and BSA-provided training, including but not limited to those relating to: 

  • Unauthorized fundraising activities 
  • Advocacy on social and political issues, including prohibited use of the BSA uniform and brand 
  • Bullying, hazing, harassment, and unlawful discrimination of any kind 

Applicable section of the BSA Rules & Regulations

Policy Concerning Political Questions  

The Boy Scouts of America must not, through its governing body or through any of its officers, chartered councils, Scouters, or members, involve Scouting in political matters. However, this must not be interpreted to prevent the teaching of ideals of patriotism and good citizenship as required to fulfill the Boy Scouts of America’s purpose. Faith-based teachings incorporated into the Scouting program by religious chartered organizations in a manner consistent with the Bylaws are not considered political matters. This policy does not prohibit the Boy Scouts of America from expressing its opinion upon matters of governmental concern when considered in its best interest by the governing body of the Boy Scouts of America. This policy does not limit the freedom of thought or action of any Scouter or member as an individual in a manner not directly or indirectly implying a connection to Scouting.
