Our dedicated staff travel to schools and community centers in the Twin Cities to bring a scouting curriculum to youth. In the 2012-2013 school year, we led over 60 programs to over 2,000 youth. During Scouting After School, youth will have opportunities to build character, develop citizenship, learn new things and have fun.


Youth may play capture the flag, build a model bridge, practice outdoor skills, do a science experiment or many other activities during their scouting program. As they learn and achieve new skills, they will earn badges and ranks within Scouting.


Additionally, youth in Scouting After School will have opportunities to attend camping trips (day camps and overnight) where they might cook over an open fire, climb a rock wall, pitch a tent, hike in a state park, practice archery or sleep in an outdoor shelter!


Camping Opportunities

One of the best parts of Scouting is going on campouts and trying new outdoor activities. At our day camps and overnight camps, youth may learn archery and rock climbing at Base Camp, play in the snow at Polar Cubs (winter camp) or sleep in a tent at Camp Akela. We want as many of our youth as possible to go to camp.


Details about upcoming camping opportunities will be posted on our News & Events page.

Pinewood Derby

Each spring, Scouters participate in the annual Pinewood Derby. This involves shaping, designing, assembling and racing a wooden car that runs on a track. Scouts can take pride in learning new skills and completing their car all by themselves!


Most program sites will hold their own Pinewood Derby, with the fastest cars moving on to the District Race in the spring. Details about the 2014 District Race will be posted here as they become available.
Scouting After School staff are dedicated to delivering exceptional programming and passionate about youth development. Each staff undergoes specific training to ensure safety of youth and a quality experience in Scouting After School.

The Scouting After School curriculum is specially designed to help youth earn Scouting advancements. 


Kindergarten through 5th graders participate in Cub Scouts (Ranks include Lions, Tigers, Bears, Wolves and Webelos). In Cub Scouts, youth may learn things like how to fold an American flag, how to read a map and compass and basic first aid. Cub Scouts will also sand, design, build and race a wooden car for the annual Pinewood Derby each spring. 


Middle school youth will participate in Boy Scouts, where they will build on skills like knot tying, wilderness survival and more.


Currently, we are developing a curriculum for Venturing, a Scouting program for older boys and girls. Venturing gives participants the chance to learn new Scouting skills but also to pass along their knowledge in the form of service to others.


Each Scouting program is guaranteed to be an adventure for your youth!


The Scouting After School curriculum was developed through a partnership with Public Allies Twin Cities, an AmeriCorps program.
