Our Council

Scouting prepares our youth for active lives full of adventure. As the Scout grows, so does the level of adventure, allowing our members to go places, test themselves, and have one-of-a-kind experiences.


Scouting helps young people expand their horizons and build interests in the world around them. Whether they want to learn more about the outdoors, career and life skills, or technology, the BSA facilitates this through hands-on learning and opportunities for exploration that can’t be found anyplace else.
