About Great Rivers Council-Boy Scouts of America
BSA at a Glance
The Great Rivers Council, BSA, is one of 275 councils in America that exist to help mold young people into leaders and responsible citizens with high moral and ethical standards. For children, the lure of Scouting is the fun of adventure, outdoor activities, and doing exciting things with kids their own age.
Religious institutions, parent groups, fraternal organizations, service clubs and businesses join with us to make Scouting programs available.
The Great Rivers Council, BSA is governed by the council executive board. The council executive board is headed by the council president and is made up of annually elected local community leaders.
The board establishes the council program and carries out the resolutions, policies, and activities of the council. Board members serve without pay and some are volunteer Scouters working at the unit level.
