New: Scouting Publications

Boys' Life

The boy's life magazine is an official monthly publication of the Boy Scouts of America. This magazine is designed to engage young males ages 6-18. Boys' Life is published in two demographic editions. Both editions often have the same cover, but are tuned to the target audience through the inclusion of 16–20 pages of unique content per edition. The magazine usually contains buying guides for electronics such as mp3 players, sunglasses, and video games etc. They also feature unusual Boy Scout trips that average Boy Scouts don't usually take. The magazine also contains physical fitness tips and healthy eating and lifestyle, comics and all things boy in the magazine.

The first edition is suitable for the youngest members of Cub Scouting, the 6-to-10-year-old Tiger Cubs, Cub Scouts and first-year Webelos Scouts. The second edition is appropriate for 11-to-18-year-old boys, which includes second-year Webelos through 18-year-old Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts and Venturers. If the subscription is obtained through registration in the Boy Scouts of America program, the publisher will select the appropriate edition based on the boy's age.
