Minsi Trails Council

For over a century, the Boy Scouts of America has helped youth find adventure in their local community and the great outdoors.  The number one goal of Scouting is to have FUN!  The Scouting program offers limitless activities to meet this goal; camping, canoeing, biking and snow tubing barely even begins to cover the awesome trips that units do on a regular basis.  There's more to Scouting than just the trips however; it also helps youth develop character, strong leadership skills and build lasting friendships with their fellow Scouts.  Growing up with Scouting is a positive life-changing experience that can give all youth lifelong social skills and unforgettable memories that can't be found anywhere else.

The local Minsi Trails Council, BSA serves nearly 9,400 youth through the leadership of 3,800 adult volunteers. The Council provides programs to youth throughout the Anthracite Region, Pocono Mountains and Lehigh Valley in Pennsylvania along with western New Jersey and serves six-counties: Lehigh, Northampton, Monroe, Carbon, Luzerne, and Warren counties. The local Scouting heritage dates back 109 years to 1910 when the council’s first Scout troops were established in Allentown and Easton areas. The Minsi Trails Council has three Scout Camps located in the Pocono Mountains: Akelaland Cub Scout Camp and Settlers Camp at Trexler Scout Reservation in Jonas, PA and Camp Minsi in Pocono Summit, PA. Combined, these camps serve more than 5,000 campers annually.
