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.
Charter Renewal: Charter Renewal time is here. This process is vital to running a high quality program in every Cub Scout Pack, Boy Scout Troop and Venturing Crew. Charter renewal packets will be handed out at your district roundtable meeting in December.
