The Brooklyn Council encompasses the Lenape Bay and Breukelen districts and serves 2,500 youth in 95 volunteer-led units. We strive to ensure the young men and women participating in our inclusive programming are “Prepared for Life”.
From weekly Pack and Troop meetings to annual borough-wide events like the Pinewood Derby, Brooklyn Conservation project, Cook-o-Ree, Emergency Preparedness Day, and more, Brooklyn Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, and Venturers become engaged community leaders through leadership development, physical fitness, service learning, STEM, environmental sustainability, and the list goes on!
We offer exceptional programs with dozens of area companies and organizations to give Scouts the unique opportunity to take their Merit Badge and advancement work outside the traditional unit meeting and into the real world. This allows Scouts to learn about the topics that interest them most from experts out in the field.
Our partnerships include One World Observatory, the Intrepid Air and Space Museum, the City of New York Department of Environmental Protection, the New York Genealogical & Biographical Society, CNN, Metal Shop Fantasy Camp, Dime Bank, Too Moos, and the list continues to grow! Find out on the Merit Badge Pro Series page more about our current partners, where to sign up for upcoming events, and how to get involved!
