to the Garden State Council of the
Boy Scouts of America!


The Garden State Council is one of the largest youth-serving organizations in South Jersey. In 2016 we had more than 8,000 young people registered in Garden State Council programs. These young people are supported by over 3,000 adult volunteers that serve as leaders, merit badge counselors, and committee members to deliver a quality Scouting program. We serve Scouting units in Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester, and Salem Counties, as well as Buena Vista Township and Buena Borough in Atlantic County.

The Council operates Scouting Resource Centers in Millville and Westampton to meet the needs of Scouts and units throughout South Jersey. Both centers have fully stocked Scout Shops.

The Garden State Council offers a variety of camping facilities to meet your unit's needs. Visit our Camping page for more information about all our camping programs, including Summer Camp. 

We have a few ways to help you stay informed. You can start with the Garden State Council website and the Council Calendar. The Calendar shows all our upcoming events, activities and District and Council meetings; and will be the way you register for most of our events. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter. But the best source for Garden State Council news is to subscribe to the Electronic Knapsack, our weekly email newsletter.


Welcome to Scouting!

Your Adventure is Just Beginning!
