Welcome to Baltimore Area Council

Thank you for visiting our website. The Baltimore Area Council, Boy Scouts of America is one of the largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations in Central Maryland. 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 community.

Important Message: Volunteer Recognition Reception has been Postponed

Due to circumstances in Baltimore and the surrounding area, the Baltimore Area Council is postponing the Annual Volunteer/Eagle Recognition Banquet originally scheduled for this Thursday evening, April 30, at Loyola University. This was a difficult decision in many respects. However, with a curfew in place, safety issues that could arise and because of the respect we have for the citizens in our communities, each dealing with our current challenges in their own way, we believe it is appropriate to postpone the event.

We thank you all for what you do to provide a quality Scouting and appreciate your patience.

More information on a rescheduled event will be made available in the next week.
