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 has many online tools to help all volunteers do their jobs. However, sometimes issues arise. If you are having trouble with any of the BSA online tools please submit a ticket and one of our experience volunteers will help you solve it. This was formerly offered by the National Office as Member Care but has been closed and is now a local Council service.
