BSA Scouting Outside of U.S.

If you are moving or live outside of the United States, you can still continue to be a member of the Boy Scouts of America. The World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM), of which the BSA is a member, is divided into six regions: Africa, Arab, Asia-Pacific, Eurasia, Europe, and Interamerica. Three BSA councils provide service to BSA members participating in BSA Scouting programs outside of the U.S. Our map below helps show the service areas of the 3 councils along with their contact information.
