We provide programs and services to over 27,000 boys in 35 counties throughout Northeast Wisconsin and Michigan's Upper Peninsula. We have over 320 Cub Scout Packs, 230 Boy Scout Troops, 90 Venture Crews and 75 Explorer Posts.
Over 6,000 adult volunteers in our Council give their time and effort to prepare boys and young men to be the leaders of tomorrow helping them develop academic skills, self-confidence, ethics, leadership skills and citizenship skills that will positively influence their decisions as adults. Please look around, make yourself at home and let us show you our passion for Scouting!
Our MISSION is to instill in young people lifetime values and develop in them leadership skills and ethical character as expressed in the Scout Oath and Law.
