Fall program and sign-ups start first weeks of September, and coincide with the start of school year!

Scouts can join at any grade level, K-12, any time, though most programs run September to June, aligned to the school year.

Each Scout Group (a Unit known as a “Pack” or a “Troop”) posts their own program calendar on separate website or Facebook page.

Programs are guided by Scouts BSA (National Org) frameworks but defined & delivered 100% by parents & youth who run each Pack or Troop. YOU, yes you, make it happen, and it’s highly rewarding & fun.
