Online Membership Application Goes Live

Online Membership Application Goes Live

Scouting families and prospective Scouting families have asked for it, and now it is here!
Beginning today, April 3rd, the traditional paper registration method will not be the only way to join Scouting. The Boy Scouts of America will offer online registration to meet the demand for completing the entire registration process for youth members and adult leaders more efficiently.
This is a giant leap forward in allowing prospective members and leaders to register in a way that's convenient for them, and it creates a more efficient and user-friendly registration experience for units, districts, and councils.

For full details please check out documents and videos at:
