School Night for Scouting!

The School Nights for Scouting is our main recruitment effort. We open up the school, have an informational presentation, and sign up night on one evening shortly after the school start.

Let’s Do Some Recruiting!

If you are a parent trying to find a Scouting opportunity for your child in Eastern Jackson County, please contact us at 816-942-9333 or e-mail one of the contacts listed. We can help you find the right fit for your child. You can also visit to find a pack, team, troop, or crew close to you.
