For more than 100 years, Scouting in Orange County has helped build future leaders by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun and adventure in the outdoors. We care passionately about what is happening to kids and our communities – and are dedicated to supporting an exciting, quality program that builds better young people and our future leaders.
Here in Orange County, Scouting continues to improve families and our community by serving more than 20,000 youth. The Orange County Council is divided into seven geographical areas called districts. Each district is made up of local Scouting units called Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops, Venturing Crews, and Exploring Posts that are chartered to a local school, religious organization, or community center. Scouting activities happen all year-long in your local neighborhood or at one of our beautiful scout camps.

The Orange County Council, Boy Scouts of America has moved its office of operations to the Irvine Ranch Outdoor Education Center forming a new Scout Campus. Earlier this year the Board of Directors of the Council approved the sale of the building in Santa Ana. In early 2020 volunteers and council staff cleared out the Santa Ana office and have since setup the our new Scout Campus.
Scouting thrives in the great outdoors and now volunteers, Scouts, the community, and Council staff will be immersed in Scouting and the outdoors every time they visit the Scout Campus. The move allows the Orange County Council to focus introducing more youth to the outdoors through the life-changing programs provided by Scouting.
