About

The Western Massachusetts Council serves the Scouts and Scouters in Berkshire, Franklin, Hampden, and Hampshire Counties of western Massachusetts.

The Western Massachusetts Council is geographically the largest Boy Scout council in Massachusetts. 

It is the mission of the Boy Scouts of America to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

The Boy Scouts of America is the nation's foremost youth program of character development and values-based leadership training.

In the future Scouting will continue to

  • Offer young people responsible fun and adventure;
  • Instill in young people lifetime values and develop in them ethical character as expressed in the Scout Oath and Law;
  • Train young people in citizenship, service, and leadership;
  • Serve America's communities and families with its quality, values-based program.
