Ways to Get Involved
with Scouting

Golden Gate Area Council invites you to take advantage of the enriching scouting events and opportunities our organization offers participants. Getting involved is as simple as attending one of our recruitment events. These events occur at the beginning of the school year and allow you to ask questions and meet the unit leader. You can also use the online application process to join with a completely digital process. If you have any questions outside a recruitment event, we invite you to contact us so we can direct you to the right district and your closest unit.
