Rhody Non-Profits ~ Boy Scouts of America Narragansett Council

Narragansett Council
Boy Scouts of America
Rhode Island


The Boy Scouts have been a presence in Rhode Island since 1910, and the Narragansett Council was founded in 1929 by the merger of several local councils in Rhode Island and Massachusetts. That's 81 years of service. The Council now covers Rhode Island and parts of southern Massachusetts.

Boy Scouts include Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Ventures, based on age group, and teach their members skills and to be " trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent" (from the BSA site).

Narragansett Council has scout troops all over the state, and runs camps and other programs. Find out more by contacting the Administrative Office at 401.351.8700, or visit www.narragansettbsa.org.
