The Gulf Stream Council, chartered in 1914, currently serves over 7250 Scouts and 2500 adult volunteers in a seven county area including Palm Beach, Martin, St Lucie, Indian River, Okeechobee and Hendry counties in southeast Florida.
Scouting is a year-round educational program designed to accomplish the aims of character development, citizenship training, and personal fitness through fun, adventure, service, achievement and leadership training.
Scouting builds character and community through a variety of activities including camping, canoeing, hiking, sailing, community service projects, and more. These hands-on activities instill a sense of confidence, preparedness and honor in our kids. Contrary to popular belief, Scouting isn't just for boys and young men. Scouting also offers venturing and exploring programs specifically geared to young women and men, ages 13–20.
Separated into four diverse programs, Scouting offers a unique experience for today's youth:
Cub Scouting (7–10 year old boys)
Boy Scouting (11–17 year old boys)
Varsity Scouting (14–17 year old boys)
Venturing (13–20 year old boys and girls)
The Council Service Center is located in Palm Beach Gardens, FL on Military Trail, one half mile south of Northlake Blvd on the west side of the street. From I-95, exit at Northlake Blvd and go west to Military Trail and south to the Service Center.
