Cub Scouting is fun for the whole family.  In Scouting, boys and girls start with their best right now selves and grow into their very best future selves. It’s fun, hands-on learning and achievement that puts kids in the middle of the action and prepares them for today – and for life.

This is the traditional Scouting experience for youth in the fifth grade through high school. Service, community engagement and leadership development become increasingly important parts of the program as youth lead their own activities and work their way toward earning Scouting’s highest rank, Eagle Scout.


A program for young men and women designed to help young adults grow into responsible and caring adults through education and recreational experiences.
A co-educational mix of worksite and classroom-based programs that offer career education through role models and hands-on learning by bringing youth and organizations in the community together.

The Mason-Dixon Council, BSA delivers the Scouting program to more than 2,110 youth and their families in Washington County, Maryland and Fulton and southern Franklin Counties in Pennsylvania, with the assistance of nearly 900 registered adult members. Formerly named the Washington Area Council, the Mason-Dixon Council was formed in 1956. The council owns and operates the nationally-accredited Sinoquipe Scout Reservation in Fort Littleton, Pennsylvania, where over 1,600 Scouts created experiences that will last a lifetime in 2017. The council is also home to the Guneukitschik Lodge 317 of the Order of the Arrow.
