Serving the youth of Harford County Maryland




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
