Go To BeAScout

Cub Scouts
Boy Scouts
Sea Scouting

It's as easy as 1-2-3!  

1. Find the program that is right for you

Scouting is divided into groups with age-appropriate structure and activities. CLICK HERE to learn more about Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturing, Sea Scouts, and Varsity.

2. Find a unit near you

Use BeAScout to locate the units in your area (See the box to the right). Remember - the youth and their parents decide which unit to join. If your son goes to a school where there is a Cub Scout pack, but you would rather join a pack that meets at your church, that is your decision.

3. Contact the unit leaders or the scouting professional for your area

In BeAScout you will be able to send a message to the leaders of the unit or units in which you are interested. You may also contact the Scouting professional in your area for information on the Scouting program as well as on units in your area. CLICK HERE to find out what district you are in, and the contact person for your district.
