Juniata Valley Council of the Boy Scouts of America

Who We Are

The Juniata Valley Council, Boy Scouts of America was chartered in 1934 and serves Centre, Huntingdon, Juniata and Mifflin Counties in Central Pennsylvania. The purpose of the Boy Scouts of America, incorporated on February 8, 1910, and chartered by Congress in 1916, is to provide an educational program for boys and young adults to build character, to train in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and to develop personal fitness. Over 60 community-based organizations throughout Centre, Huntingdon, Juniata, and Mifflin Counties in Central Pennsylvania receive national charters to use the Scouting program as part of their own youth work. These organizations, which operate 112 local Scouting Packs, Troops, and Crews, have goals comparable with those of the Boy Scouts of America, include religious, educational, civic, fraternal, business, and labor organizations, corporations, professional associations, and citizens groups.

What We Do

It is the mission of the Juniata Valley Council, BSA to serve others by helping to instill values in young people and in other ways to prepare them to make ethical choices over their lifetime in achieving their full potential. The values we strive to instill are based in the Boy Scout Oath and Law.
