I would like to…

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.

HOW THE COUNCIL WORKS

Unit Structure, Meetings, Events, etc.

Leatherstocking Council

Supports Districts

In Scouting, the local Council provides support and resources for the Districts and units in its territory. All of the individual districts are managed and organized by the Council board. The board is made up entirely of volunteers and supported by a small professional staff. 

Leatherstocking Region Districts

Supports Scouting Units

Districts provide program and support to all units within its designated area. Districts help coordinate things such as activities, fundraising, and advancement and provide day to day support for units. The District is run by a committee of volunteers and supported by a District Executive and/or a District Director.

Scouting Units (Packs, Troops, Crews, & Posts)

Serve Scouts!

Finally all units are run by volunteers that serve as Unit leaders and committee members. These volunteers work hard to plan meetings, activities, outings, community service and more! This is where you’ll do most of your activities.
