Scouting and Guiding in Utah
Scouting in Utah has a long history, from the 1910s to the present day, serving thousands of youth in programs that suit the environment in which they live.
Early history (1910-1950)
Since the 1920s, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has been influential in the Boy Scouts of America, and it was adopted as an official youth program of the Church. It is not uncommon for Utah Boy Scouts of America Councils to field large, predominantly LDS troops and contingents to national and worldwide scouting events.
Recent history (1950-1990)
