2013 is the 100th anniversary of the relationship between the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (LDS) and the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). On May 21, 1913, the Church became the first nationally chartered organization to affiliate with the BSA, based on a mutual interest in helping boys and young men understand and live their duty to God. Over the past 100 years, countless young men have participated in Boy Scouts through Church-sponsored troops.
On October 29, 2013, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints hosted a nationwide Scouting Open House Night. Local LDS churches opened their doors and invited packs, troops, teams, and crews to join them to celebrate and view the live broadcast of “A Century of Honor.”
