About us 


Octoraro District Chester County, Boy Scouts of America

     The Chester County Council, which began in January 1919, serves Chester County, PA and the northwestern corner of Cecil County, MD.

     The Boy Scouts' vision is to prepare every eligible youth in America to become a responsible, participating citizen and leader who is guided by the Scout Oath and Law. We achieve this through thousands of dedicated, talented volunteers and a small number of professional staff. For several we have been in partnership with more than 110 community organizations, had 5,700 youth members and 2,600 adults volunteering their time to deliver those quality-run programs. 

     Octoraro District serves Unionville-Chadds Ford, Kennett Consolidated, Avon Grove, Octorara, Oxford and Cecil County School Districts.
