Scouts BSA

Scouting provides an educational program for boys and girls that builds character, trains in the responsibilities citizenship, develops mental and personal fitness. We serve over 6,000 youth through partnering (Scouts BSA, Venturing, and Exploring) programs in a five county area (Monroe, Ontario, Wayne, Seneca & Yates Counties).

Scouting is a family fun program and makes the most out of the time parents have with their children as they grow and mature. Both boys and girls will engage in fun adventures where they can explore the world around them. They'll try new things.They'll grow in confidence in the abilities. They'll become more self-reliant.  They'll make friends and lifelong memories!  Scouting also helps to build character, increase citizenship, and develop personal fitness.

Excitement awaits for boys and girls in the Counties of Ontario, Wayne, Seneca, Yates, and Monroe as well as the City of Rochester, New York.Five county map of Seneca Waterways Council
