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 over 6,000 youth in north-central Wisconsin. We serve youth and families in the following counties: Adams, Juneau, Wood, Portage, Marathon, Taylor, Lincoln, Langlade, Price, Oneida, Forest, Vilas and Clark. We provide the necessary support services to ensure success of our units. Furthermore, the council provides year-round camping programs, youth and adult training opportunities and a council service center.
