Who Can Join?

The only requirement is to love Scouting!

  • Do you endeavor to live by the Scout Oath and Scout Law in your daily life?
  • Do you care about youth in your community?
  • Do you want to have fun with a purpose?

Then the Scouting Alumni Association is for you!

The SAA brings people together under the common banner of Scouting.

Activities of the Scouting Alumni Association fulfill Lord Baden-Powell’s vision for Scouting: to promote mutual understanding and goodwill. We hope that affiliates will join and help one another accomplish lofty goals while striving to make our country a better place to live.

So go ahead. Find a group with interests similar to yours. Organize and serve your community, and help the next generation navigate the terrain into adulthood.


About the Alumni Association

The Scouting Alumni Association is for everyone who has been positively impacted by the BSA—family members of Scouts (past and present), volunteers, Scouters, and community leaders.

The SAA makes America stronger. It serves every Scouting alum—but it is our loyal and supportive Hikers and Pathfinders who make programs and services possible for America’s youth.
