The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
Fun, Adventure, Values… You've found it all with Scouting, the most proven and successful youth program in America. Founded in 1920, Samoset Council currently serves 6,300 youth in north-central Wisconsin. We provide the necessary support services to ensure success of our districts and the units they support. Furthermore, the council provides year-round camping programs, youth and adult training opportunities and a council service center.
School Night For Scouting: September 18, 6:00 - 8:00 PM. Our annual fall registration campaign. Cub Scout Packs will have a sign-up meeting at the local school (or in some cases, another location near the school). Meetings will give parents basic information and the opportunity to complete the membership application form and pay the registration fees.
Annual Program Planning: A common element of strong packs is they all have a good annual pack program planned a year in advance that is then shared with all families in the form of a calendar. These resources will help your unit plan an annual program.
Samoset Units Recognized: Annually, the Boy Scouts of America recognizes Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops, Venturing Crews and Exploring Posts for providing exceptional program quality to their youth.
