The Western Massachusetts Council of Boy Scouts has hundreds of scouting units serving every city and town in Western Massachusetts.
Parents & family members can have fun too by joining our over 2,000 local adult volunteers!
Make Scouts a family affair, and watch your kids GROW in knowledge, responsibility, self esteem, and character, all while having tons of FUN!
- If your son is 7-10 years old or in Grades 1-5, he will join a Cub Scout pack (boys who have finished Kindergarten can join in June as Tiger Cubs);
- If your son is 11-17 years old, he may join a Boy Scout troop;
- If you son or daughter is at least 14-20, he or she may join a Venturing crew.
