Join Scouting!

If your son is at least 7 years old (or in the 1st grade) and not yet 18 years old, we have an excellent youth development program for him to become involved in - Cub Scouts (for grades 1-5) or Boy Scouts (for grades 6-12). We even have co-ed programs that girls can join if they are at least 14 years old - Venturing & Exploring. For more information about joining click here.

Parents - we have a short video for you on YouTube, click here to view the videoExternal Link

Family Friends of Scouting Scheduling

During the first few months of each year (usually Jan/Feb/Mar), we ask packs and troops to allow a Family Friends of Scouting presentation to be scheduled during the Blue and Gold Banquet, Court of Honor or other pack/troop meeting. The district will have a presenter attend and talk to the parents for about 8-10 minutes about how the council supports the local pack. Parents are then given the opportunity to make a financial pledge to the Friends of Scouting campaign. This is not a high-pressure sales pitch.
