Lewis and ClarkClark, Scott, Washington, Harrison, Crawford, and Floyd counties in Southern Indiana
Are you ready to get outside?!
Come join in on the action in Southern Indiana! Lewis and Clark District serves ~2,000 young men and women and their families across the 6 counties we serve! With 26 wonderful Cub Scout Packs for young men and women grades K-5, 22 Scouts BSA Boy Troops for grades 6-12, 3 Active Scouts BSA Girl Troops for grades 6-12, and 4 Co-ED Venture Crews for young men and women ages 14-20, there is rarely a dull moment in Scouting in Southern Indiana! Thousands of parents and volunteers across our 6 counties come together in churches, schools, community centers, and work through the scout ranks every week to make our community stronger, and we couldn’t do any of this without your help!
We love to show off what wonderful things Scouts and Scouters are capable of. Have you been moved by the actions of a Scout or Scouter in Southern Indiana? Are your own Scouts doing something to benefit the community or a local organization? We want to hear your story! Send positive impact messages to Lewis & Clark’s Senior District Executive Jonathan Barfield, to be featured on our District Facebook page!

Scout BSA Unit Leaders and Parents:
Thank you for your cooperation and positive attitudes in following the restrictions placed on Scouting meetings and activities over the past eight weeks. Keeping our Scouting family and community safe is important. I am proud of our families for living the Scout Oath to “help other people at all times.”
For the last two months, we have been exploring all options related to running our summer resident and day camps. We developed a Health Advisory Committee that includes the top leaders in their respective field.
Knowing how important the role summer programs play in a Scout’s experience, we have had detailed conversations with local health departments, state officials, proactively contacted the Governor’s Office for input. We have reviewed every possible option to operate camps this summer in a manner that is safe and in alignment with the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
Due to the ever-changing situation surrounding COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our cam operations this summer. This includes all Scouts BSA camps, Cub Scout Day Camps, Cud Adventure Days, Cub and Webelos Resident camp and NYLT courses.
I know this announcement is disappointing. As a past camp staff member, camp director and the father of a Scout, I share that disappointment. I thank you for your continued patience and understanding through these unprecedented times.
Our team of dedicated staff and volunteers are currently developing several exciting activities that will keep Scouts engaged, learning and advancing in rank his summer. More information will be shared on our social media pages and through emails in the coming weeks.
Thank you for your commitment to a safe and quality Scouting program.
