BSA Alumni Association


Thank you for your interest in joining or renewing your membership to the BSA Alumni Association. We are in the process of creating a new Alumni experience and you will able to join very soon. 

We look forward to bringing you a refreshed, streamlined, valuable experience designed to help you connect with other Scouters and stay engaged with Scouting today. 

Are you a fan of Scouting? Then you can join!

It began on a foggy night in London when an unknown Scout appeared to a lost American businessman, W.D. Boyce, and guided him to his destination. The young Scout’s “good turn” changed the course of history and launched the Boy Scouts of America.

Since that fateful day over 50 million Americans have been members of the BSA and countless others have been positively impacted through community service projects conducted under the auspices of Scouting.

Scouting Alumni & Friends is open to:

  • Family members of Scouts
  • Past and present volunteers
  • Friends of Scouting
  • Past Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Sea Scouts, Varsity Scouts, and Venturers

Scouting Alumni & Friends serves every Scouting alum. If you have an idea for how we can do more to serve Scouting alumni, talk to us. We’d love to hear from you!

We also want to say THANK YOU to all the loyal and supportive HikersPathfinderClimbers, and Trailblazers who are currently making Scouting’s programs and services for America’s youth possible.
