Daniel Webster Council, BSA

The Daniel Webster Council provides services and youth-development programs to families with children ages 5-21, and community organizations in New Hampshire. Our mission is to prepare young people to make ethical and more decisions over their lifetime by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law. Five key focus areas ensure outstanding opportunities for youth and adult members:

Leadership: Scouting’s purpose is to prepare young people for a lifetime of leadership. Our nation will never outgrow the need for thoughtful, responsible leadership. The values and lessons of Scouting will never go out of style.

Achievement: The Scouting experience includes learning valuable skills and achieving meaningful goals. The Boy Scouts of America promotes action—taking the initiative to do things that better individuals, strengthen relationships, and support communities.

Character: Through its methods and program, Scouting helps shape and build in youth the many qualities that guide good decision making in life. Scouting’s lessons last a lifetime.

Service: The commitment by adults helps build a straight road for our youth to follow into the future. Scouting helps youth of America find—in themselves and in the world around them— more than they thought possible.

Outdoors: Learning to appreciate our world and our place in it remains essential to the Scouting experience. Youth today face many distractions. Scouting promotes active involvement in the enduring nature of the Scouting experience.

Using the same Scouting program offered to older boys, the organization will deliver a program for older girls that launched in February 2019 through which girls will be able to earn the highest rank of Eagle Scout.​ This program name changed from Boy Scouts to Scouts BSA. While our corporate brand name is Boy Scouts of America, our existing programs are relevant for both young men and women. After all, the values of Scouting as outlined in the Scout Law – trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent – are relevant and important values for both young men and women. As such, the program for girls, ages 11 to 17 will be the same curriculum offered in the Scouts BSA program.​​ 

Daniel Webster Council offers the following programs:

  • Cub Scouts for boys and girls grades 5-10
  • Scouts BSA for boys and girls ages 11-18 (single gender program)
  • Venturing for boys and girls ages 14-21
  • Exploring for boys and girls ages 14-21
