Welcome Back to Scouting Events


Announcing our Welcome Back to Scouting events!  These events are open to Scouts and families that left Scouting during the pandemic, youth and families that are interested in joining Scouting, and Scouts who are currently in our program. 

These events are designed to be FUN and to welcome everyone back.  If you haven’t been in Scouting for a while or are looking to get registered, volunteers will be on hand to connect you with a local unit.  If you are a current Scouting family, come out and join us for some fun!

If you can’t join us for one of our events and are looking to invite a friend to Scouting, join yourself, or rejoin, you can always call our Service Center to be directed to a District Executive who can find the right unit for you, or you can find a local active Pack at BeAScout.org. 

To say that the last couple of years have been challenging is the understatement of the year.  We know that it has been challenging for families to find activities that were worthwhile, engaging, fun, and safe.  We have been working to adjust our programs to make sure that all our participants are safe while experiencing Scouting Adventures.  As the outlook on COVID-19 continues to improve, we hope that 2022 will be the best year of Scouting yet and we hope that you will be a part of it!

For current Scouts and returning Scouts it is not too late to experience the highlight of the Scouting year – Summer Camp!  Our local Cub Scout Adventure Camps are awesome experiences for youth that are new or getting restarted in Scouting.  Our resident camps at Camp Tuckahoe are great programs for Scouts in 1stthrough 5th grade.  Find out more at www.newbirthoffreedom.org.

We hope to be able to welcome you back as part of our Welcome Back to Scouting events!
