...New to Scouting

Welcome to Scouting!

Scouting is about character development and having confidence in yourself to Be Prepared! The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is the largest youth organization in the U.S.  Our program is a family program, one that we hope will become part of your family. Our goal is that you will come to enjoy Scouting just as much as your child. This page is designed to help you become familiar with Scouting and hopefully answer some questions you may have.

Have you Joined a Scouting Unit?

If not, there's a fast and easy website (www.beascout.org) where you can find a Scouting unit close to you!  There are programs for boys and girls age 5 through 20.

Getting started as a new parent and leader:

Once you've joined Scouting, there are lots of resources available within your new Scouting group, in your local district (a geographic service area of several dozen Scouting groups), and through your Coastal Carolina Council (the local Scouting entity, made up of six districts).  If you need help finding your local resources, please give us a call at (843) 763-0305.
