Join the Leatherstocking Council

The Leatherstocking Council provides character development and leadership skills training to 1,700 Scouts in Delaware, Herkimer, Madison, Oneida, Otsego and Schoharie counties, as well as parts of Hamilton and Lewis counties. We also maintain and staff Camp Kingsley near Rome, NY for Cub Scouts Summer Camp and adventure weekends throughout the year for Cub Scouts and Scouts, BSA.  Scouts of all ages (5-18) learn valuable life skills, self-reliance, leadership, and build character. More importantly, Scouts have fun while learning and make lifelong friends in the process. 

When your child joins Scouts, they are embarking on a trail that could ultimately lead them to the rare and distinguished rank of Eagle Scout. Becoming an Eagle gives your Scout and edge in life and helps ensure that they have the leadership skills, character, self-confidence and experiences to succeed in their future endeavors, whether that be college, the trades, the military or community service.

There’s a Scouting program for everyone from 5-20.

Scouting is available to all youth between the ages of 5 and 20. Regardless of race, gender, ethnicity or personal lifestyle. From Youth grades K-5 there is Cub Scouts. Youth aged 11-17 take part in Scouts, BSA where they have the opportunity to become an Eagle Scout. For co-ed programs, youth ages 10 – 30 can join an Explorer Post. Youth ages 14 – 20 can join the Venture program. To find out more about Scouts, BSA, Exploring and Venturing or how to find a unit near you, visit www.beascout.org.

How Cub Scouts Works

One unique thing about Cub Scouting is that you as family, join in on the program and help them along the way. Cub Scouting exists to support your family and help enrich your family time together. Your son or daughter will have a different handbook at each grade level, with adventures that are age-appropriate for their development level.

As they advance through these books by working on adventures with you, they will earn badges and other recognition that can be worn on their uniform. Your child’s success in Cub Scouting depends on you!
