Welcome To the Boy Scouts of America!

For over a century, the Boy Scouts of America has created a strong foundation of leadership, service, and community for millions of America’s youth ranging from ages 6 - 21.  In 2012 the organization celebrated two centennial anniversaries: the 1st Scout achieved Eagle rank and the organization launched “Boys Life” as its official magazine.

The Revolutionary Trails Council, one of the first councils established in the United States, has impacted the lives of over 8,000 men and women through a variety of age specific programs in the central New York counties of Oneida, Herkimer, Madison, Hamilton, Lewis, and Otsego.  Since 1913, over 4,300 Scouts have achieved the rank of Eagle Scout under the guidance of leaders in our council.

Mark your calendars- the Council is hosting a Wood Badge Course at Camp Russell! It's been a few years since our Council hosted this course, so don't miss out on your opportunity to get this valuable training. We are partnering with the Otschodela Council in Oneonta to run the course over two weekends late this summer (August 15-17) and early fall (September 20-22).  Any adult leader may attend and enjoy this amazing experience.For more information and to sign up, click here.

Get your Scouts to Summer Camp!  We're offering a quick Popcorn Show and Sell this Spring (4/15 - 6/8) to help Scouts get to camp. Because this sale has no prizes, the percentage back to the Scout and Unit is higher. Orders are due on Friday, March 28th. If you are interested contact Rolland Miner at the Scout Service Center. Click here for more information and to download the guide.


It's back again! NYLT staff will be here in the spring of 2014 for another great two-weekend course. Click here for more information.
