Welcome to Scouts

You’ve just joined the nation’s foremost character development organization for youth!

The next step is to help you and your child connect with Scouts near you. Our staff is now contacting the local leaders on your behalf. If you are not contacted by a Scout leader within a few days, please call the Baltimore Area Council office at 443-573-2500. In fact, just call us anytime you have questions about Scouts, handbooks, uniforms, or other getting-started questions! Many answers are here:

Scout Handbooks: You can pick handbooks at one of our Scout Shops

Boys’ Life Magazine: Please allow 4-6 weeks for the first Boys’ Life magazine to arrive.
