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. Whether you’re interested in Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturing or being an adult volunteer, it’s easy to find out what Scouting is all about using Be A Scout.
