Scout Shops

To better serve our Scouting families and leaders, the New Birth of Freedom Council is home to two Scout Shops operated by the Boy Scouts of America’s National Supply Group.

Both the Mechanicsburg and York Service Centers are home to well-stocked Scout Shops, featuring uniforms for Scouts of ages, handbooks and other Scouting literature, insignia and other badges, camping gear, handicrafts and much more.

For more information on these Scout Shops, including operating hours, driving directions and contact information, please use the links below.  A photo tour of each Scout Shop is also available on both of these pages.
