Pacific Harbors Council, BSA presents:

Scout-O-Rama 2019; is a family-friendly Scouting skills show or 'Scout Con', open to the public and all BSA Scouting units, to have a hands-on opportunity to learn more about the Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA for boys, the Venturing program for older teens, the Family Scouting program for girls ages 6 - 10, and the all-new Scouts BSA program for girls 11 to 17 years old!

Presented by the Pacific Harbors Council of the Boy Scouts of America, Scout-O-Rama is designed to take the "Scouting Story" to the youth and families in our communities who are not yet a part of the Scouting experience, and give them a sense of the excitement and adventure of Scouting.

A Scout-O-Rama is a huge, interactive, indoor-outdoor hands-on "Scouting Experience", featuring family friendly activities, informational displays and hands-on opportunities to demonstrate Scouting's value to today's active families.

For Scouting Units

Each Scouting unit in the Council will have an opportunity to participate in this event, with the potential benefits being unit level networking with other Scout units, fun for the whole family and more.

Units develop the idea for a hands-on activity that would give visitors a chance to actually "do" Scouting — whether it be learning how to make ice cream in coffee cans, demonstrating knot tying, flag folding, arts & crafts, games or finding out more about how to cook a meal using no pots or pans. All this, and so much more, could be the focus of a unit's 10' x 10' Scout-O-Rama display booth.

To participate in this event, please choose one of the following options:

  1. Register your Troop, Pack, Crew or Ship for a display booth
    (get registered)
  2. Information inquiries for Scout Units (ask a question)
  3. Volunteer as an Event Staffer
  4. FAQ's for Scout Units
