Learn. Lead. Live. 

With nearly 3,000 youth participants, the BSA, Montana Council provides the state’s foremost youth program of character development and values-based leadership training in 13 districts across Montana.

The Boy Scouts of America was officially incorporated on February 8, 1910. Since then, over 130 million young people have been involved in the Boy Scouts of America.

Each year, hundreds of thousands of youth attend a council camp or a national high adventure base. 

Nearly four percent of Scouts earn the rank of Eagle Scout each year. Well over the 55,000 youth attained the rank of Eagle Scout in 2021.

The Montana Council continually looks for new program offerings. Capital improvements continue at our council camps to ensure our facilities are ready for new program. 

Montana Council comprises nearly 2,400 adult volunteers. We cover the largest landmass area of any Boy Scouts Council in the continental United States, approximately 142,00 square miles!

Over 12 million service hours were reported by Boy Scouts last year. That represents a value of over $206 million in labor to local communities.


Nearly 1.2 million volunteers donate an average of 20 hours of service per month to the Boy Scouts of America, totaling over 288 million hours throughout the year!


Boy Scouts are often the first to be called for a flag ceremony or to retire flags that are worn or faded. Scouting is recognized for an unparalleled respect for our Flag. 


At least two-thirds of the pilots and scientists selected as astronauts since 1959 were Scouts. Of the twelve men to ever touch ground on the moon, eleven of them were involved in Scouting earlier in life and two of them are Eagle Scouts. 



Montana Council sells more popcorn per youth than any other council in the nation. In 2021, we sold over $1 million in popcorn. Now that’s a lot of popcorn!
