Greater Niagara Frontier Council
The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetime by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law.
The Greater Niagara Frontier Council serves over 7,000 youth in the communities of Erie County and the western third of Niagara County. The Scouting programs include Cub Scouting for boys ages 7 to 10. Boy Scouting for boys ages 11 to 17, and Venturing for boys and girls ages 14 to 20.
How to Join Scouting
Scouting activities are organized into “units” based on the age of the youth. Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts are for boys while Venturing is co-ed. Units are generally sponsored by churches, schools or other civic organizations in your community.
