The Boy Scouts of America has a proud tradition of performing service projects in Glacier National Park as far back as 1925. Since the BSA Centennial in 2010, Scout units from Montana and Canada have completed outstanding service to Glacier National Park each summer.
Only 250 medals will be minted to recognize those Scouts and Scouters who devote a minimum of 20 service hours in Glacier National Park during the summer of 2024.
Those desiring to participate in this event must submit their application to the Glacier National Park Volunteer Coordinator. When filling out the application, please select a first and second desired week of service since your first selection may be full. A designated week runs from Sunday to Friday.
Projects may vary between East and West Glacier. The unit is to arrive at the beginning of their week and be given a designated project by the park. Units will have some flexibility in performing their hours of service so they can also enjoy the wonders that Glacier National Park has to offer. The Park will waive the camping fee while the service project is performed. Once the project is completed the unit must pay the normal camping fee.
