Scouting for Everybody!

Outdoor fun, leadership skills, and community building for everyone.

Age Levels

We offer scouting for children as young as 3-years-old to adults. Each age level, or section, has a unique program where scouts can earn badges for challenging themselves, learning, and growing as a person and a member of their community.

Our youngest scouts, ages 2 to 4, play games, explore the outdoors, and learn about working together as a team in a fun, and engaging way.

At 5 to 7 years old, Otters are busy and bright, observing nature, learning about the world around them, and the basics of scouting.

Every day is an adventure. Scouts ages 8 to 10 learn how to care for themselves and their pack while exploring new interests.

For scouts ages 11 – 17, Pathfinders explore leadership roles, take adventures on their own, and navigate adolescence with friends who are walking a similar path.

Yes, adults can earn badges too! Rovers is our program for adults who want to scout, challenge themselves, learn more about themselves. Service is our motto.

Getting Involved is Easy!

OSG has scout groups all over the country. You can use our Find A Group tool to see if there is a group in your area.

If there is not an established group in your area and you are interested in starting one, we have tools and support available to help you. Just reach out to your Regional Commissioner to get started.

You can also choose to join our Lone Scouts program, for scouts who do not have a group nearby but still want to participate.
