Lewis and Clark

Clark, 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 year. 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.”

Our team of dedicated staff and volunteers are currently developing several exciting activities that will keep Scouts engaged, learning and advancing in rank. More information will be shared on our social media pages and through emails. Click Here to view the current guidelines for safe Scouting in the LHC

Thank you for your commitment to a safe and quality Scouting program.

Scout on,

Jonathan Barfield – District Director
