BSA Youth Member Application

Welcome to the BSA!

The BSA makes Scouting available to our nation’s youth by chartering community organizations to operate Cub Scout packs, Scouts BSA troops, Venturing crews, and Sea Scout ships. The chartered organization provides an adequate and safe meeting place as well as capable adult leadership and requires adherence to the principles and policies of the BSA. The BSA local and national council provide training, program, outdoor facilities, literature, professional guidance, and liability insurance protection.

The annual national registration fee is nonrefundable. For general questions, contact your BSA local council
