Long Beach Area Council

A nonprofit organization

$240 raised by 4 donors

Since 1919 - for more than 104 years - the Long Beach Area Council has served generations of Long Beach families. The Boy Scouts trains young men and women in responsible citizenship, character development, and self-reliance through participation in a wide range of outdoor activities, educational programs, and career-oriented programs in partnership with community organizations. The Boy Scouts provides more than 30,000 hours of service to Long Beach every year. Local scouts also collect 16,000 pounds of food in a one-day effort every year. More than 60 teenagers each do large-scale community projects every year in pursuit of earning the coveted and well respected designation of Eagle Scout. More than 5,000 Long Beach youth attended our Long Beach Sea Base aquatics facility in 2022.


my son says the Pledge of Allegiance which they don't say in the classroom anymore
they learn first aid, to be nice other people, they learn respect
my son does things here that I would never think to teach him and things we can't do at home
both my sons and my nephew are in the program
they make new friends because they meet other kids who aren't in their classroom
my son loves Mr. Reno, there is a bond they have like a mentor
when the program started again I didn't know if my son would want to continue but he said oh mom It's time again
he loves the patches, and they don't just hand out awards. The kids have to earn them and they protect their awards
as a mom, I know my kids are well taken care of in this program, it gives me peace of mind
because of this program, I don't have to worry about my kids getting into gangs and drugs. We don't live in the best neighborhood so we need this
it's not just the kids, but the parents meet each other too.
I love how my kids learns to socialize and work together with other kids


The mission of the Boy Scouts of America 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 Law.
