Five Rivers Council Inc., BSAAbout UsWelcome to Five Rivers Council, BSA

WELCOME!  Are you ready for fun and adventure for your family? Well, you’ve come to the right place! Five Rivers Council, Boy Scouts of America provides fun, safe, age-appropriate programs that are for boys from 1st grade through 20 years of age, and young women from 14-through 20 years of age. We offer programs in six New York counties and four Pennsylvania Counties, the “Twin Tiers.”

While learning vital life skills like Character Development, Citizenship Training, and Personal Fitness, our youth work with trained adult mentors who guide them on their journeys through the various programs. If you like to achieve things and be recognized for them, we have a multi-faceted advancement program that has something for everyone. If you like to get outdoors, we have two beautiful adventure Scout Camps to visit, CAMP GORTON on Waneta Lake in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York, and CAMP BRULE’ in Sullivan County, Pa’s “Endless Mountains.”

Entire families can benefit from Scouting and all that it has to offer! Memories are built that last a lifetime, and the parents are right in there taking part in the activities and fun. Our children stay young for such a short time, and Scouting offers an unparalleled variety of opportunities for youth and their parents to work and play together, rare today when so many programs have the parents just cheering from the sidelines.

The Boy Scouts of America celebrated its 104th birthday in 2014, and countless men and women wouldn’t trade their experiences in Scouting for anything in the world! So, if you want to have fun, build values, get outdoors, experience new things, and watch your children grow into confident, honest, hardworking and courteous young adults, join us today!
