Welcome to the Official Website for Harford District

Thank you for visiting our website. The Harford District of the Baltimore Area Council, Boy Scouts of America is one of the largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations serving Harford County. The BSA uses the youth outdoor programs of camping, fun and adventure to provide a program for young people that build character, trains youth in the responsibilities of participating citizenship and develops personal fitness.

Trained volunteers help foster future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The Boy Scouts of America believes that new programs like Scout STEM help youth build a more conscientious, responsible and productive commmunity.

Yours in Scouting

Bruce McMillin, District Chairman

Important Announcements:

Operation Icicle Rescheduled for February 5 - 7,2016

Based on the current weather forecast for heavy snow late Friday and Saturday along with receiving emails from leaders concerns about road conditions the Harford District has moved Operation Icicle to the weekend of February 5 - 7, 2016.
The event is still in Camp Spencer.
We will keep your site reservation unless you tell us otherwise.
As part of this date change I have also done the following:
** Troop 564 - switched to the new date and you still have Prospect Lodge.
** Troop 238 - switched to the new date and still have your facilities in Camp Oest.
** All - please feel free to forward to your troop members and others in the district I may have missed. I have tried to cross check my emails along with the trip list, so please help me so we do not miss anyone.
As a note - I kept everyone's email address visible, so that all see the contacts I am trying to reach for each group.
If there are any questions, do not hesitate to contact me.
Our main goal is to keep everyone safe and I hope everyone understands the reasons for the date change.
