Las Vegas Area Council
The Las Vegas Area Council delivers the programs of the Boy Scouts of America to the youth of southern Nevada and western Arizona. We work in partnership with local chartering organizations, community partners, parents and more than 7,381 volunteers to help serve the nearly 19,709 youth registered to Scouting programs.
Scouting teaches young men and women values that will help them throughout their lifetimes. By instilling the values of the Scout Oath and Law we are able to prepare leaders for the future, instill duty to God and build long-lasting friendships.
Five key focus areas ensure outstanding opportunities for youth and adult members:
Leadership: Scouting’s purpose is to prepare young people for a lifetime of leadership. Our nation will never outgrow the need for thoughtful, responsible leadership. The values and lessons of Scouting will never go out of style.
Achievement: The Scouting experience includes learning valuable skills and achieving meaningful goals. The Boy Scouts of America promotes action—taking the initiative to do things that better individuals, strengthen relationships, and support communities.
Character: Through its methods and program, Scouting helps shape and build in youth the many qualities that guide good decision making in life. Scouting’s lessons last a lifetime.
Service: The commitment by adults helps build a straight road for our youth to follow into the future. Scouting helps youth of America find—in themselves and in the world around them— more than they thought possible.
Outdoors: Learning to appreciate our world and our place in it remains essential to the Scouting experience. Youth today face many distractions. Scouting promotes active involvement in the enduring nature of the Scouting experience.
