"Scouting's Journey to Excellence" is the BSA's council performance recognition program designed to encourage and reward success and measure the performance of our units, districts, and councils. It is meant to encourage excellence in providing a quality program at all levels of the BSA.

Journey to Excellence should be seen and used as part of your unit's program planning and not just as a scorecard for rechartering. Unit's who have followed this path have become stronger, larger and seen more advancement than units who have not.
