What is Scouting?

Welcome to Garden State Council, Boy Scouts of America


The Garden State Council offers a variety of programs to serve the youth of South Jersey in the counties of Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester and Salem, plus Buena Vista Township and the Borough of Buena in Atlantic County.

Scouting is adventure, family, fun, character, leadership and so much more.

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.
