The new Bald Eagle District Executive, Brian Vanvestraut, hails from the Northeastern Pennsylvania Council, where he earned his Eagle in 2013 and served on the Goose Pond Scout Reservation Staff from 2010-2018.  He is also a Vigil Honor Member of the Order of the Arrow with the name Sehe Mikemossit.  He has attended two National Jamborees, including one as a staff member, and National Camp School.

Brian is a recent graduate of Mansfield University and was a leader in several organizations, most notably serving as president of his chapter of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia Fraternity.  In his free time, Brian enjoys all things music, especially musical theater, and playing with his dog.  Brian is very excited to be with the Susquehanna Council and is looking forward to the great work he and his volunteers will do to make this program the best it can be for the youth we serve!

Exciting adventures and important life skills await in Scouts BSA, now open to all youth ages 11-17. Welcome, new Scouts!

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!
