Welcome to the Five Rivers Council
Boy Scouts of America
The greatest Youth Development Program in the World!
Scouting is for your family and every family in our communities. At a time when many seem focused on division, Scouting provides an opportunity for everyone to come together and be part of the fun and adventure. We offer safe, fun, and educational age appropriate programs for boys and girls from kindergarten to 20 years of age, and young women from age 14 to 20.
Whether your child wants to go camping, provide service to their community, race pinewood derby cars, learn about STEM activities, or just hang out with their friends, we offer it all. The Council provides first rate Scouting programming and facilities throughout the Twin Tiers of New York and Pennsylvania, serving the youth of eastern Allegany, Chemung, southern Livingston, Schuyler, Steuben, and western Tioga counties in New York, as well as Bradford, Lycoming, Sullivan, and Tioga counties in Pennsylvania.
Scouting for Food 2021
Be sure to live up to the Scout Slogan of Do a Good Turn Daily, and motivate your unit to collect food for those in need. Scouts from around the country have been participating in this event since 1985. Units will place the door tags on neighborhood doors on November 6, and collect food donations a week later on November 13. More info on and the reporting form are available on this page.
