Scout Me In!

1: Locate Your Council – Welcome to Catalina Council, BSA

Your council will be able to help you locate the right unit for your needs. Do you need a unit that meets on a certain day of the week or a unit that is chartered to your child’s school? The council will be able to help you locate the pack, troop, crew, ship, or post to best meet your individual needs.


2: Contact Your Unit – Click here to find the Unit that fits your family

Once you have located your council and determined the best Unit for your family, contact the unit leader to find out when their next recruitment event will be held.


3: Complete Your Application

Your application will take time to be approved by the unit leader. If you have any questions during the application process, contact your unit leader or local council service center.


4: Start Your Adventure in Scouting!
