What is Scouting?
Scouting is the youth program designed to bring in everyone from the family to the great outdoors, learn new skills, and develop character. For more than a century, the Boy Scouts of America has instilled in children and their families a sense of accomplishment and pride, teaching them how to become future leaders of their communities.
Explore Your World!
Scouts in the Crater Lake Council get to experience what it’s like outside of their homes and schools, making the outdoors their other classroom. From basic first-aid to wilderness survival, young men and women learn the skills to thrive and care for their environment.
Explore With Friends!
In Scouting, children are able to go on adventures with friends and even meet more along the way! This is where they can develop interpersonal and leadership skills, as well as lifelong memories, that they will carry with them through the rest of their lives.
Explore Your Community!
While various activities and youth groups teach basic skills and promote teamwork, Scouting goes beyond that and encourages youth to achieve a deeper appreciation for service to others in their community.

Cub Scouts thrive out in nature. They learn the importance of the world around them, and the adventures that can be found with friends.
Scouts don’t just enjoy nature; they learn from it. Scouts take day hikes, go swimming, and embark on rugged multi-day backpacking and canoe treks.
