Parents, Volunteer Leaders and Scouting Supporters:


The Istrouma Area Council is committed to delivering a safe and impactful Scouting program. Despite challenges with the pandemic, Scouting in the Council has continued.

As a valued member of Scouting, our goal is to keep you informed about National Boy Scouts of America. In February 2020, National BSA filed for bankruptcy to equitably compensate survivors of past abuse and to continue the mission of Scouting.

The Chapter 11 financial reorganization only relates to National BSA. The Istrouma Area Council has not filed for bankruptcy. The Istrouma Area Council is a separate corporate entity which operates under guidelines provided by National BSA to deliver Scouting. Learn More.
