Central North Carolina CouncilInterested in Scouting?

When you’re a kid, fun comes first. Final exams, driver’s ed and summer jobs will arrive soon enough. Cub Scouts lets kids have fun while teaching them skills that will help them later on. From the thrill of shooting an arrow to learning how to transform a block of wood into a race car, Cub Scouts is one thrill after another. With a program expertly tailored to match each age in a young child’s life, Cub Scouts learn that even when fun isn’t easy, it’s always an adventure. In Scouting, everything has a purpose. And it shows kids that doing their best is the most fun of all.

Scouts BSA is the traditional Scouting experience for youth in the fifth grade through high school. Service, community engagement and leadership development become increasingly important parts of the program as youth lead their own activities and work their way toward earning Scouting’s highest rank, Eagle Scout.




How do I join my Local Scout Unit?

This year, the Central NC Council is inviting all Kindergarten to 5th Grade Boys and Girls to join in the fun and adventure of Cub Scouts, and youth ages 10-18 to join Scouts BSA on September 24th from 6-8 PM. Click here for our locations across our seven-county area. 

If you cannot attend September 24th, click here to be contacted by a local scouting unit! 

What is the cost of participating in Scouting?

It is $58.35* to register for the remainder of 2020. This total includes the National Registration Fees and the Local Council Activity & Insurance Fee. This does NOT include any additional Unit Dues, a Scout Handbook, or your Scout’s Uniform. However, the Scout Shop often runs a sale on uniforms during the recruitment period.

*Please note that there is also a small, $2 processing fee when paying with a card.

Is Scouting safe?

Yes! Scouting is safer than ever before. By following CDC guidelines, the CNCC has been able to offer innovative and engaging Scout programming all while remaining safe and virus-free. For example, this Summer we offered a variety of Virtual Merit Badges and hosted a Virtual Campout with a special welcome from NASCAR driver Ryan Newman! We were also able to run a limited capacity Resident Camp and received incredible feedback relating to our COVID-19 safety protocols:

"Health precautions were excellent."

"They are a wonderful team! All of them doing a great job! My daughter spent a wonderful weekend in Barnhardt Weekend Camp Program. Thank you all!"

"We greatly appreciated the flexibility of the staff to change their plans/skills taught based on the make up and desires of the Scouts during the weekend. The Scouts had a great outdoor experience - just what they needed, and precautions seemed appropriate. It was a very busy schedule, but that seemed appropriate for the short event. Thanks!!"
