Cub Scouts

Boys & Girls Grades K-5

Cub Scouting is fun for the whole family. In Scouting, boys and girls start with their best right now selves and grow into their very best future selves. It’s fun, hands-on learning and achievement that puts kids in the middle of the action and prepares them for today – and for life.

Scouts BSA

Youth 11-17 years old

Scouts BSA is the traditional Scouting experience for youth in the fifth grade through high school. Service, community engagement and leadership development become increasingly important parts of the program as youth lead their own activities and work their way toward earning Scouting’s highest rank, Eagle Scout.

Venturing

Co-Ed 14-20 years old

Venturing is youth-led and youth-inspired. You’ll acquire life skills and gain experiences that will prove to be valuable regardless of where your future takes you, all while having a blast: leadership, event-planning, organization, communication, responsibility – the list goes on!

Sea Scouts

Co-Ed 14-20 years old

Sea Scouting is a program of the Boy Scouts of America for young men and women ages 14 to 20. For over 100 years Sea Scouting has promoted better citizenship and improved members’ boating skills through instruction and practice in water safety, boating skills, outdoor, social, service experiences, and knowledge of our maritime heritage.

Exploring

Co-Ed 14-20 years old

Exploring provides exciting activities and one-on-one mentorship for youth looking to discover their future. Whether you’re a local organization looking to strengthen the community or a young person wanting to uncover the possibilities of your future, Exploring is a great place to start.

Whether joining a Greater New York Council’s Scouing program at age five or age 17, youth participants will have valuable experiences for wherever the future brings them. Scouting is a community of volunteers and members, participating in activities  that build character, comunity, camaraderie, and fitness.
