Welcome to Prairielands Council, Boy Scouts of America. We're always recruiting Scouts and Volunteers!
  • The Prairielands Council actively seeks potential community partners to join with us in bringing Scouting to more young people within our nine-county service area. Our current chartered organizations include churches, school groups, service clubs, veterans organizations, fraternal orders, and many others whose common thread is an interest in building local programs for local youth.


    More details can be found in the media release.
