Garden State Council Has A Program for Everyone

Scouting is adventure, family, fun, character, leadership, and so much more.

In Scouting, boys and girls start with their best right-now selves and grow into their very best future selves.

Fun, hands-on learning and achievement puts kids in the middle of the action and prepares them for today — and for life.

Garden State Council serves the kids and their families of six New Jersey counties. Our camp properties serve as gateways to adventures
in the Pine Barrens, the Jersey Shore, Philadelphia, and everything in between.
