Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, Sea Scouts, Venturers, Explorers, and STEM Scouts in the Great Smoky Mountain Council have virtually unlimited opportunities for adventure, learning, and growth.

Scouts learn to build a fire, shoot a bow and arrow, communicate in Morse code, and find their way with a map and compass. They become examples of responsibility and maturity through service to their community, their environment, and their God. They discover their futures through hands-on exploration of hundreds of possible careers. They challenge themselves as they earn merit badges, advance through the ranks of Scouting, and grow as a leader.
