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.

Veteran Awards – Boy Scouts of America

The Veteran Award is an adult recognition.   However, tenure as a youth in a Boy Scout, Venture Crew, Varsity Team and/or Exploring Post can be included in the total number of years registered.

After 5 years of registered service in the BSA, an adult may, upon application, receive the designation of “Veteran” provided the person agrees to live up to the Scouting obligations; to keep local Scouting authorities in the community in which residing informed as to availability of service; and further to be as active in the promotion of the cause of Scouting as circumstances and conditions permit.  Service in Scouting organizations other than the BSA does not count toward veteran recognition.  An individual must currently be a registered member of the BSA to receive the award.

Scouters desiring recognition as 5-80-year veterans (with intervals of 5 years) must have maintained an active registered relationship for the required number of years, paying the annual registration fee.  The records of the national office and local council shall determine eligibility.  The periods of service claimed for veteran recognition need not be continuous.

 Application is available in the button below or can be obtained from the Council Office.   Please forward completed application to WCC – BSA, One Scout Way, Doylestown, PA  18901 or email to: annamarie.pepper@scouting.org.

Veteran Awards are usually presented at the Council Recognition Dinner (this year it is Thursday, October 28th).  To ensure your award is processed in time, please submit no later than October 7th.    If you wish to receive your award at a different event, please attach a note with instructions.
