The ScoutReach program in Pennsylvania Dutch Council gives special leadership and emphasis to urban and rural Scouting programs. Focused on the cities of Lebanon and Lancaster, Scoutreach is the Council’s commitment to ensure that all young people have an opportunity to join Scouting, regardless of their circumstances, neighborhood or ethnic background.

In Lebanon County we have 7 active programs, including a summer program serving youth. In Lancaster County we have 5 active programs and numerous summer programs serving  youth. In total Scoutreach serves over 600 youth.

How does ScoutReach deliver the program to the youth?

  • Professional staff (20 Program Specialists).
  • Numerous volunteers throughout the year.

What goals does ScoutReach strive to achieve?

  • Increased parental involvement at home and at Scouting events.
  • Improved academic performance and behavioral growth.
  • Provide positive adult role models to youth that may lack such relationships in their lives.
  • To assist the youth to transition into a “traditional” Cub Pack or Scout Troop, depending on their age.
