  • PALA stands for the Presidential Active Lifestyle Award, a program of the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition (PCFSN).
  • PALA is designed to motivate participants to be physically active on a regular basis by allowing them to participate in activities they enjoy, as well as improving their eating habits. Earning a PALA is definitely doable by anyone at any fitness level.

What is the SCOUTStrong™ PALA challenge?

In 2011, the Boy Scouts of America aligned with the PCFSN with the shared goal of together promoting good health for America’s youth.

The SCOUTStrong™ PALA Challenge, a Scout-specific PALA challenge, is one of the results of this alliance.
