Scoutreach District

Scoutreach is the BSA’s commitment to making sure that all young people have an opportunity to join Scouting, regardless of their circumstances, neighborhood, or ethnic background. In the Buffalo Trail Council, Scoutreach District covers the same geographic area as the council but concentrates its efforts primarily upon more suburban areas.

Today, young people are faced with many challenges including fragile families and disintegrating neighborhoods. In the rapidly growing areas of West Texas, particularly the Permian Basin, the need and demand for the Scoutreach program is essential for the future of youth who might not otherwise be able to participate in Scouting.
