Welcome to Five Rivers Council

Welcome to the Five Rivers Council, Boy Scouts of America!  

Scouting is for your family and every family in our communities, by providing a platform for everyone to come together and be part of the fun and adventure.  We offer safe, fun, and educational age-appropriate programs for all youth from kindergarten to 20 years of age.  

Whether your child wants to go camping, provide service to their community, race pinewood derby cars, learn life skills, or hang out with friends, we offer it all.  Five Rivers 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.

Please join in the adventure and we’ll see you on the trail!
