Scouts BSA


Scouts BSA is the traditional Scouting experience where boys and girls can have their share of adventure in the great outdoors. Develop a love of service by volunteering in your community, boost your leadership skills through fun and exciting challenges, and create memories of a lifetime with no prior Scouting experience required!

Plus, as a Scout, you’ll likely catch more fish, build more campfires, climb more mountains and hike more trails than most youth your age. 

As a Scout, you’ll work your way through the Scout Handbook, attend meetings with your friends and go on truly memorable adventures, like winter camping and multiday river trips. You’ll also learn the importance and personal satisfaction of serving your community, whether that’s by volunteering at the local food bank or planting willows to shore up an eroding stream bank.

In Voyageurs Area Council there are dozens of Scout troops, with some communities having several options. These troops hold exciting events such as banquets, fairs, campouts and, outdoor treks. Parents, friends and leaders play active roles in the program as they help boys and girls gain confidence and achieve their goals, one badge and one adventure at a time.
