Join the Adventure!


Scouting gives young people the opportunity to explore a world beyond the boundaries of everyday life. It presents them with chances to try new things, provide service to others, build self-confidence and develop leadership skills. These experiences help Scouts while they are young, and stay with them throughout their adult lives, helping them to grow into exceptional men and women who respect their families, communities, religions, countries and themselves and are Prepared. For Life.


To join, email us and we’ll help you find a unit nearby. You can also call us at 301-530-9360 or visit for a listing of Scout groups in your area.


Once assigned a unit, youth must complete the youth application (también disponible en español) and submit it to their unit leader with the appropriate fees.

Adult volunteers and new youth participants who are at least 18 years old can complete the adult application (también disponible en español), and submit it to the unit leader with the appropriate fees.
