About

The programs of the South Florida Council annually impact more than 45,000 youth and their families.

The South Florida Council is the local chapter (founded in 1911) of the Boy Scouts of America and offers year-round programs created to develop character, citizenship, leadership, life skills, and fitness in youth. We proudly serve youth in the South Florida counties of Broward, Miami-Dade, and Monroe.

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.
