Welcome to the Great Alaska Council

Brief Introduction to the Great Alaska Council

The Great Alaska Council issues Charters for Scoutings youth programs to organizations across Southeast, South Central, and Western Alaska. We work to bring the programs of Scouting to youth who live in the many areas across Alaska. We provide resources to each Charter Partner and the Volunteers who run each Scout Unit. Such resources include training for volunteers, staff to coach volunteers, summer camp, a service center with a store that can ship supplies anywhere in Alaska, and so many more things we do not have room to name them all here.  

We do all this by focusing on our mission which “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.” We look forward to serving you, your community, and the youth in your area. feel free to contact us for any reason.
