Beginning June 11, 2018, the Cub Scout program, ages 5-10/grades K-5, opened to boys and girls, in separate dens. By welcoming both girls and boys into the program, even more youth have access to the character development and values-based leadership that Scouting promises and be better prepared for future success. See what we offer for Cub Scouts by clicking the menu at the left.


Beginning Feb 1, 2019 the Boy Scout program, ages 11-18, changed its name to SCOUTS BSA, and is now open to boys and girls, in separate troops. Just as before, these Scouts will earn merit badges, go camping and work toward the Eagle Scout Award. See what we offer for Boy Scouts by clicking the menu at the left.

What is Family Scouting?

Family Scouting means Scouting is open to the whole family: boys and girls!

What is Scouting?

Scouting is a year-round program uniquely designed to meet the needs of young people and their families. The program offers fun and challenging activities that promote character development and physical fitness. Family involvement is an essential part of the program, and parents are encouraged to play an active role in making the most of the short time they have to impact the lives of their children. Scouting is designed to be experienced outdoors. Hiking, camping, mountain biking, skateboarding, BMX, mountain climbing, kayaking, whitewater rafting–these are just some of a Scout’s outdoor experiences.
