Charters, As defined on the Boy Scouts website...
"A chartered organization can be a place of worship, school, or other community group that has the same interests as the Boy Scouts of America (BSA)."
"Annually the local council enters into an agreement with the chartered organization granting them a charter. This charter enables the organization or group to use the Scouting program under adult leadership they approve of in order to accomplish its objectives and to serve the organization's youth and families."
