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.

Voice of the Scout: This month many of Samoset Councils’ Scouts, parents, volunteers, and chartered organizations will receive the fall edition of the BSA’s twice-yearly Voice of the Scout (VOS) survey. Launched in 2012, VOS is designed to measure the value of Scouting in the community and help us deliver experiences that surpass the expectations of our members. Please take a few minutes of your time to participate and encourage other members of your unit to do the same.
Join Camp Staff: Applications are now being accepted for 2015 summer camp staff. Anyone interested should apply by December 1st.
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.
