Brooklyn Council

BSA Brooklyn

Welcome to the official website of the BSA Brooklyn Council, part of the Greater New York Councils. Scouting enjoys a long, rich tradition in Brooklyn, with roots going back 100 years to the founding of Boy Scouts in America. The council continues to grow as American Scouting reaches into its second century. 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. We hope you will join us as we strive to form the leaders of tomorrow in our community by passing on the ideals of Scouting.
