After School Scouting Programs in Crossroads of America
The After School Scouting Programs are a part of Central Indiana’s Boy Scouts of America, known as Crossroads of America Council, and are designed to meet the needs of all youth ages 5-17.
Emphasis is placed on providing adult leaders as role models and skill development through a specialized curriculum. Weekly pack/troop meetings, regional events and camping opportunities are simply a few of the hallmarks of our programs.
We assist our youth with scholarships for registration, uniforms, handbooks, camp fees, and equipment.
- Increase youth participation while retaining more youth annually.
- Increase youth advancing through the program.
- Increase the number of hours of community service.
- Increase youth outdoor experience.
