Welcome to Washington Crossing Council

The Washington Crossing Council proudly serves over 8,500 youth throughout Bucks County, Pennsylvania and the Greater Hunterdon and Mercer Counties in New Jersey. In the time-tested tradition of Scouting, the Washington Crossing Council will enthusiastically meet new challenges head-on and continue to offer quality programming and services to the communities we serve.

Scout Me In

The BSA’s mission is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law. We are excited to announce that our Cub Scouting program is now open to boys and girls. By welcoming both girls and boys into the program, even more youth will have access to the character development and values-based leadership that Scouting promises.
