Join Scouting

Be a part of the fun and adventure! Scouting provides an educational program for boys and young adults to build character, to train in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and to develop personal fitness.

The Pony Express Council serves over 290 Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops, Venturing Crews and Explorer Posts in Missouri and Kansas and provides the Scouting Program to youth ages 6 through 20. Registration is a simple process and is determined by age or school grade.

  • Cub Scouts - boys age 7-10 or grades 1-5
  • Boy Scouts - boys age 11-18 or grades 6-12
  • Varsity Scouts - boys ages 14 - 18
  • Venturing - young men and women ages 14 - 21

I'm Ready To Join

To join Scouting,  contact your local unit or contact the Pony Express Council to find out how to contact a Scout unit in your area. There are also Unit pages available in a list from each of our Council's district pages.

Attend a Recruitment Event

Recruitment events are a great way for you to meet the leaders of Cub Scout Packs and Boy Scouts Troops serving your area and to learn about what Scouting can offer. Scout units typically host recruitment events at your local school, church, or civic center in the fall and in the spring.

Come join the fun and see what it is all about!
