How do I make a scout account?

Answered by Willie Powers

To create a Scout account, follow these step-by-step instructions:

Step 1: Open your web browser and type “” in the address line. Press Enter or Return to go to the website.

Step 2: Once you are on the website, locate and click on the “Create Account” option. This is usually found at the top right corner of the screen.

Step 3: After clicking on “Create Account,” the “Create Account” screen will appear. Here, you will be asked if you are already associated with the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). Using the drop-down menu provided, select either “yes” or “no” based on your current association with the BSA.

If you select “yes,” it means you are already affiliated with the BSA in some capacity, such as being a registered Scout, a parent or guardian of a Scout, a volunteer, or a BSA staff member. In this case, you may be prompted to provide additional information, such as your BSA member ID or your council name, to verify your association.

If you select “no,” it means you are not currently associated with the BSA. In this case, you will proceed with creating a new account as a non-member.

Note: The specific steps and information required may vary slightly depending on your location and the BSA council you are associated with. It is always a good idea to have any necessary membership or council information ready when creating a new account.

Once you have completed the necessary steps and provided any additional information, you will be guided through the process of creating your Scout account. This usually involves entering personal information, setting up a username and password, and agreeing to any terms and conditions.

Remember to keep your login credentials secure and easily accessible for future use. Your Scout account will allow you to access various features and resources related to the BSA, such as training materials, advancement records, and event registrations.

If you encounter any difficulties or have specific questions about the account creation process, it is recommended to reach out to your local BSA council or the my.Scouting support team for assistance. They will be able to provide further guidance and address any concerns you may have.

Creating a Scout account is an important step towards engaging with the Boy Scouts of America and accessing the many opportunities and resources available to Scouts, parents, volunteers, and staff members.
