About Our Council

The Greater Los Angeles Area Council currently has 26,000 youth served, 10,700 adult leaders and we send over 12,000 kids to camp each year.  We provide educational programs for boys and young adults that build character, citizenship, and personal fitness.

Since our founding in 1915, the Greater Los Angeles Area Council has brought its purpose and values to millions of youth. The Scouting program facilitates meaningful contact and communication between youth, parents, and other community organizations (partners) to help young people adopt strong values and life skills.

The program presents activities that are fun, interesting, and provide valuable experiences directed at the maturity and interests of the young people at their appropriate age and ability levels.

The purpose of the Greater Los Angeles Area Council is to meaningfully and proactively offer leadership for the delivery and quality of the program, to assemble and train volunteers, and to gather resources to implement and promote the program to parents, youth, and the general community in the Greater Los Angeles Areas.
