The Boy Scouts of America Files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy to Equitably Compensate Victims While Ensuring Scouting Continues Across the Country

The national organization of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy to achieve two key objectives: equitably compensate victims who were harmed during their time in Scouting and continue to carry out Scouting’s mission for years to come.

Cornhusker Council has not filed for bankruptcy. Meetings and activities, district and council events, other Scouting adventures and countless service projects are taking place as usual. There should be no change to the local Scouting experience.

The national organization of the Boy Scouts of America is the only entity involved in the Chapter 11 filing. The Cornhusker Council – which provides programming, financial, facility and administrative support to local units and individual Scouts in our area – is legally separate and distinct from the national organization.

We remain as committed as ever to delivering Scouting’s unparalleled experiences to young people throughout our communities.
