 Make a difference by supporting the programs and activities of YOUR local Scout council. Let's give everyone the opportunity to experience the joy of Scouting!


The Mission of the Potawatomi Area Council, Boy Scouts of America, in cooperation with chartered partner organizations, is to help an ever-increasing number of youth mature into adults exhibiting traits of participating citizenship, character and personal fitness founded upon the moral and ethical values expressed in the Scout Oath/Promise and Law.

The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation's largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. It provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, develops personal fitness, and has helped build the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The Boy Scouts of America believes — and, through over a century of experience, knows — that helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society.

Have Fun, Make Friends, See New Things.

For over 80 years, Cub Scouts have been having the time of their lives making new friends and learning new things in an environment designed to help them succeed. From building his own Pinewood Derby® car to learning how to roast the perfect marshmallow with his best friends at a family campout, your child will LOVE being a Cub Scout. So if he's in the first through fifth grades, or 7 to 10 years old, then it's time for him to have some fun … with the Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts.




Help out. Have fun.

The Boy Scouts of America relies on dedicated volunteers to promote its mission of preparing young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetime by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law. Today, nearly 1.2 million adults provide leadership and mentoring to Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Venturers. Through the dedication of these many volunteers, the Boy Scouts of America remains the foremost youth program of character development and values-based leadership training in America.
