Montana International Scout Expo

Join us on the banks of the Missouri River at Montana Expo Park as we welcome Scouts and Scouters of all ages to the Montana International Scout Expo.

Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, Venturers, Explorers and the whole family are invited to participate in the many exciting activities available only in our backyard of Great Falls, Montana.

We will focus on the history and technology of the area, utilizing the vast resources available from Malmstrom Air Force Base, the Montana Air National Guard and the untamed banks of the Missouri and Sun Rivers.

Explore 12 area museums, including the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center, the C.M. Russell Museum and the Montana Railroad Museum.

Bike through some of the most challenging mountain bike trails in the region or explore 57 miles of trail within the city.
The fun kicks off with a welcome pool party. We welcome the entire community to join us at our grand parade through downtown and to close the weekend of entertainment with a spectacular closing concert.

Food services will be consolidated so that units do not have to spend valuable program time with cooking and cleanup.
We anticipate units from the Montana Council, Scouts Canada and the surrounding states, as well as possibly Japan and other countries, making this a truly international Scouting experience!
