  • INTRODUCING the 2019 Duty to God Buffalo Award
    This year's award is a necklace with a realistic, western-style buffalo skull and a swiveling medallion in the center that shows the Duty to God shield on one side and Matthew 5:16 on the reverse. This collectible item is one-of-a-kind and a good reminder of Scouting's focus on Duty to God. Learn more information by clicking the title above.
  • Rafting, Rapids, & Relaxing: What are you doing with your Scouts this summer?
    It's hard to imagine what a river rafting experience is like until you go on one. They create life-long bonds and lasting memories for Scouts and their troops. Prepare incredible and spiritually uplifting firesides that will be shared every night on your own private beach. Now's your chance to experience this river rafting adventure with the new Pro Rafting Tours Self-Guided Package. Experience the adventure today!
  • CHECK IT OUT! 2019 Merit Badge Adventures Now Starting
    We've heard you loud and clear - provide more merit badge opportunities year round! Merit Badge Adventures is just that, a Friday through Saturday adventure at one of our Scout camps that focus on helping youth work on one or more Eagle required merit badges! Troops can now combine their monthly campout with merit badge work - no extra work for the adult leaders, and great opportunities for the youth.
  • Scout Starving Student Cards are back! And can fund your dream year!
    We have teamed up with Starving Student Cards, which is a discount card packed with hundreds of dollars of free stuff and over $4,000 in discounts which will help families save a lot of money all over town.

  • Fall Into Adventure!

  • 24th World Scout Jamboree
    For the first time, a world jamboree will be hosted by three national Scout organizations: Scouts Canada, Asociación de Scouts de México, and the Boy Scouts of America. These three distinct cultures will join together to host the world Scouting community in a celebration of cultural exchange, mutual understanding, peace, and friendship.
  • An Orthodox Jewish Venturing Crew Gave New York-Native Women the Jamboree Experience of a Lifetime
    "Scouting has allowed me to do things that I wouldn't have done otherwise. It has allowed me to be free," says Hadassah Grimaldi, a member of an all Orthodox Jewish Venturing Crew.
  • How a Treehouse Taught Sustainability at Jamboree
    Participants of the 2017 National Jamboree got to relive their childhood through The Sustainability Treehouse. But this wasn't just any old tree house. This was a treehouse that stood four stories tall. Each level had interactive activities, demonstrations, and displays all focused on sustainability.
  • How to Trade Patches at Jamboree
    At the National Jamboree, patch trading has been a surprisingly fun way to build friendships. Some Jamboree attendees even claim they just came just for patch trading, which surprised me. So I dug in and looked a little deeper and found that this is very nearly its own sport at Jamboree.
  • Pro BMX Rider, Mike Escamilla, Advises Scouts to Stop Worrying About Being Good at Something
    "If I could give any piece of advice to anyone that is listening, stop worrying about being good at something and start worrying about how to be good at something. If you can master how to get good at one thing, you can master how to get good at anything. Just know it takes time. The difference between you and somebody else is somebody is quiting at 500 tries when it takes 10,000. As long as you know that, you can go anywhere."
  • The Few, the Proud, the Japanese at Jamboree
    I had no idea there were any Japanese Scouts at the National Jamboree until we heard about Camp Foxtrot. Over and over, I heard it hailed as 'the camp where all the action is at.' Why? Because all the smaller foreign contingents were matched up with U.S. contingents allowing for a camp full of unique cultural, lingual and gastro excitement. (P.S. the Thai camp had the reputation for best food at Camp Foxtrot. Can't say I'm surprised. Thai food is bomb.)
  • The Jamboree Experience
    The 24th World Scout Jamboree unites the world's Scouts to promote peace, mutual understanding and respect.
