The Westark Area Council serves over 5,400 youth in seventeen counties with Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, Venturing and Exploring programs.
The Council is committed to excellence through offering both time-honored and innovative programs to its Scouts, Leaders, and the communities it serves.
We are proud to be a part of the World Scouting movement.
Outdoor activity is at the core of Scouting's programs, but be aware that our programs range from Outdoor Ethics to STEM-NOVA and Cyber-safety and everything in between.
Scouting programs start in Kindergarten with Lion Cub Scouts and serve youth, both boys and girls, until they turn 21.
In Scouts BSA youth ranks range from Scout all the way to the prestigious Eagle Scout Award.

And even though Scouting is focused on youth leadership development, quality adult leaders are required to give guidance and mentor all of the age-appropriate programs.
