Online registration is now live! We are excited to offer prospective youth members a more convenient and efficient way to join Scouting. This means units will spend less time chasing applications, collecting money, and dropping off applications! The online registration system to welcome and register new Scouts is now available for your unit!

To access and implement the on-line registration system, please review the list below to ensure you have completed all necessary steps. Each unit’s Key 3 (top unit leader, committee chairman, and charter organization representative) will have access to the system.

 2.  Update your “Contact Us” pin in BeAScout.orgIn My.Scouting, update the “Contact Us” pin in BeAScout.org to start accepting applications. Units must change their Pin Mode to Unit, Status to Active, and Apply Status to Active. You can add your unit’s web address, primary contact info., etc.

 3.  Configure the Online Registration Tool (pg. 8)The Council has configured the On-Line Registration System to accept credit card payment only when registration is submitted. Only the BSA national registration fee and Boy’s Life subscription fee is collected through the online system. Units have the capability to inform applicants about any activity fee, the amount, and what it covers. 

4.  Watch the Training Videos.

5.  Review and Bookmark the Guidebook.

6.  Complete your Preparation Checklist.

Council is currently only accepting youth applications online. Adult applications cannot be submitted online because all adult volunteers must complete youth protection training before registering.

Once these steps are complete, your unit can begin accepting youth member registrations online.
