For boys and girls in grades K-5
The Cub Scouting program is uniquely designed to meet the needs of young boys & girls and their parents, through offering fun and challenging experiences that youth and parents do together.
For boys and girls ages 11-17
In the Scouts BSA program, youth learn through the experiences of camping, hiking, building projects, and community service. Scouting fosters self-esteem, a sense of value and belonging, a sense of accountability, and teamwork.
The Northern Lights Council has developed the Scout Point program for youth that live in areas where there is no traditional pack or troop within a reasonable distance.
Previously, youth that lived in rural areas only had the option of becoming a “Lone Scout”. Now with ScoutPoint, they can be a member of a “virtual” pack or troop, doing some activities at home and having meetings online with other Scouts. A few times during the year, Scouts from the same ScoutPoint pack or troop will get together for in-person activities.
