Scouting for Food Scouting's National Service Project to combat hunger in our communities.

Scouting for Food is a door-to-door food drive that began in 1987 as a way of combating hunger in our local communities. Fighting hunger became one of the “five unacceptables” issued by the national office of the Boy Scouts of America and became the emphasis for all Scout councils across America. 

Find out how your Pack, Troop, or Crew and participate by collecting food and help fill your neighborhood food bank.

OA Unit Elections & Visitations for 2015 are now being scheduled!  All units (even if they have no Scouts eligible this year) are requested to download and complete the form below and return to the NEPA Scout Service & Training Center at least two weeks prior to their earliest requested election date.

From time to time, area vendors will offer opportunities for you to support Scouting with things you may buy or use everyday.  Below are some current offers from area vendors who want to help support Scouting in Northeastern Pennsylvania.


The Order of the Arrow (OA) was founded by Dr. E. Urner Goodman and Carroll A. Edson in 1915 at the Treasure Island Camp of the Philadelphia Council, Boy Scouts of America. It became an official program experiment in 1922 and was approved as part of the Scouting program in 1934. In 1948, the OA was recognized as the BSA's national brotherhood of honor campers and became an official part of the national camping program of the Boy Scouts of America. Today, the OA is recognized as Scouting's National Honor Society.
