SIGN UPS ARE LIVE FOR 2023 National Jamboree!

Delayed by the pandemic but back and better than ever–it’s the 2023 National Jamboree, July 19-28 at Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia!

The Susquehanna Council contingent will depart on a charter bus on Monday, July 18 to start the Jamboree fresh on July 19. Participants need to be at least 12 years old and First Class Scouts to attend. Scouts older than 18, who were prevented from attending the cancelled 2021 Jamboree, can attend for the first time ever! COST IS $2200 per Participant

In order for the Susquehanna Council contingent to train and gel, there will be three pre-Jambo events: a weekend campout at Camp Karoondinha, a hike, and a gear shakedown. The current cost estimate of $2,200 includes the bus, tent accomodations and meals at Jambo, some swag as determined by the Scouts, and all the fun you can stand.


Join us at the Lighthouse in Lightstreet, PA for the 2023 College of Commissioner Science. The cost is $5 and each participant should bring a bag lunch, notebook, and pen. I am attaching a schedule to help the Unit Commissioners plan their day. Thank you for promoting this event. Any questions will be answered by Russ Devore at or 570-441-6164.

Please visit our new Scouting Safely pages

Few youth organizations encompass the breadth, volume, and diversity of physical activity common to Scouting, and none enjoy a better safety record. Check the links in our MORE menu above for more information about the programs and policies that BSA and the Susquehanna Council have implemented to keep our youth and adult volunteer leadership safe and join us in our commitment to safety in scouting.

Adventure Awaits

The Susquehanna Council, Boy Scouts of America, serves more than 2,100 youth through the leadership of 1,000 adult volunteers. Scouting provides programs to youth in five counties in Central Pennsylvania – Clinton, Lycoming, Northumberland, Snyder, and Union. The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

The Susquehanna Council is home to beautiful Camp Karoondinha along Penns Creek in western Union County. Each summer we provide exceptional programming to Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, and Venturers. We are building character in the youth of our communities, one child at a time!  Click below to secure your spot at Camp K for this summer!

Now is the perfect time to join a Cub Pack (all youth grades K-5) or Scouts BSA Troop (all youth ages 11-17). There is no obligation for attending a few meetings just to see what it’s all about!

Thank you to the NRA Foundation for selecting the Susquehanna Council and Camp Karoondinha this year for the Grant. We received .22 ammunition, shotgun ammunition, and arrows to help us overhaul our program moving forward. From all of us at the Susquehanna Council, Thank you!
