Scouting families and prospective Scouting families have asked for it, and it’s here! The Boy Scouts of America is offering online registration to meet the demand for completing the entire registration process for youth members and adult leaders in councils across the organization.

Since fall 2016, online registration has been rolling out to councils across the country, and we’ve seen great success and adoption with this new system. This is a giant leap forward in allowing prospective members and leaders to register in a way that’s convenient for them. Online registration creates a more efficient and user-friendly registration experience for units, districts, and councils, and we’re excited to have all councils completely on-boarded.
