About Moraine Trails Council

The Moraine Trails Council – Boy Scouts of America – supports Scouting programs in Western Pennsylvania in Armstrong, Butler, Lawrence and northern Westmoreland Counties.  Our mission is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law

The 2021 membership campaign may be the most vital campaign to the future of Scouting we have ever faced. We are counting on you to make it a spectacular! Below you will find several useful links to make your recruitment a success. Use the first two links to register your unit’s sign-up night and order materials. The Moraine Trails Council will provide your unit everything you need to make your unit sign-up night a success including fliers, peer-to-peer cards, yard signs and social media advertisement.

The third link will take you to the Scouts BSA information center for online registration. There are dozens of articles and video tutorials here about updating your unit information that appears on BeAScout.org as well as general information about the roles your unit leadership plays in making your recruitment excellent. The last link will take you to the Welcome to Recruitment page that contains media resources and instruction to help you make your marketing materials pop!

This year’s Cub Scout Fall Open House and Scouts BSA Fall Camporee will be rolled into one event taking place October 15-17 at Moraine State Park, South Shore. Activities include hiking, boating, fishing, stage shows, competition, archery, slingshots, service and more!
