About Online Registration

Scouting families and prospective Scouting families have asked for it, and now it is here!  Beginning this fall, the traditional paper registration method will not be the only way to join Scouting. The Boy Scouts of America will offer online registration to meet the demand for completing the entire registration process for youth members more efficiently.  This is a giant leap forward in allowing prospective members to register in a way that's convenient for them, and it creates a more efficient and user-friendly registration experience for units, districts, and councils.


Before You Start – Preparation Checklist

There are important steps you must take to prepare!

It is critical that you complete all items on the checklist for your Scouting role below to ensure you are granted the necessary permissions to work within the online registration system. Access to information, and the ability to take action within the system, is granted based on these permissions. To have the appropriate access, your role, council name, and a valid email address must be listed correctly in your my.scouting tools profile.

Special Message to LDS Units

Units chartered to the LDS Church are automatically recognized in the online registration system. Your registration fees will continue to be paid directly by the Church headquarters in Salt Lake City. Therefore, your invoice should show a balance of $0.00 for registration fees.

However, families will be given the opportunity to purchase Boys' Life magazine, which is not covered by the Church and will be on the invoice at checkout for the family to pay.
