Sam Houston Area Council is committed to making Scouting accessible to youth that may not be able to join a traditional unit. Scoutreach is an after-school Scouting program for our youth right at their school. The Scouts receive all of the same opportunities as a traditional unit, including summer camp, resident camp, and community service. Qualified volunteers, call the Scoutreach Corps, assist paid program specialists with teaching providing Scouts with high-quality Scouting experiences in elementary, middle schools, and community centers throughout the greater Houston area.

ScoutReach Outdoor Survival Webelos Camp (SOS)

July 24-27, 2019

ScoutReach Outdoor Survival Skills (SOS) is a camp for Webelos Scouts who will be entering 4th and 5th grade during the next school year. Webelos Scouts will work on Arrow of Light rank requirements and learn skills that will be needed to earn the Tenderfoot rank when they join a troop. SOS is to help youth and their families prepare for the transition from the ScoutReach program into traditional troops near their homes in order to continue the Scouting adventure. Scouts will also enjoy archery, rifle shooting and swimming. The camp is being held at Tellepsen Scout Camp (3450 County Road 317, Navasota, TX 77868). The registration fee is $10 per Webelos Scouts.  Adults and youth volunteers in troops, crews and ships are free.

Scoutreach Corps

Scoutreach Corps is a way for Scouters, Eagle Scouts, parents, and  Scouting alumni to give back to Scouting by donating their skills to help our most needy Scouts. Donate a few hours, a day, or a weekend to help directly with 7,000 Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts enrolled in the Sam Houston Area Council’s ScoutReach program. Volunteers are needed to help with Cub Scout and Boy Scout meetings, weekend events (e.g., pinewood derby, cuboree, camporee), weekend camping and summer camp.

Volunteers must be 21 years of age, take Youth Protection Training online at every two years, and complete a BSA Scout application. If you we're ever a Boy Scout, an Eagle Scout, current or past Scouting volunteer, or are experienced with working with youth, then you have the necessary skills.
