Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Scouting programs in Marion and western Hancock County. We're excited to share with you all of the fun things that Scouts and their friends can enjoy.
As parents, we also recognize that you are looking for:
- A safe place for your child
- Your child to be successful
- Your family values reinforced
- A place where your child can gain self-esteem and confidence
Most youth are growing up in communities where diversity is the norm and their circle of friends reflects a variety of cultures. They want and expect diverse participants in their activities and the organizations they join. We're glad to say that Scouting provides all of this.
For more information on Scouting, please explore the information below. If you'd like to speak to someone directly, please do not hesitate to contact the Scouting Professional assigned to our district or by calling our council office at (317) 813-7133. We look forward to having you and your child join the Scouting family.
