We are a member of the South West Florida Council and belong to the Panther District.
Our roster hovers around 30 scouts with a max ceiling of 40.
Our outdoor program centers around our unique access to the Everglades’ 10,000 Islands.
We have two trailers full of canoes, and the scouts have built their own folding kayaks.
We also participate in pre-1830 pioneer-style camping events. Our scouts are learning history through living history.
In 2016, a crew of our scouts paddled and portaged an epic 135 miles in 5 days in the boundary waters of Northern Tier, Canada.

It was a busy summer.
