Ways to Join Scouting

The Indian Waters Council would like to thank you and your family for seeking a Cub Scout or Scouts BSA unit to join here in the Midlands and Pee Dee Regions of South Carolina.  Scouting is where they will learn positive values, new skills and have fun with friends. This page will list different opportunities and resources for you to sign your child up and learn more about the Scouting programs.  Register online using the link below or look for more information to be distributed at your local school.  If you have any questions or need help with the registration process, please see our contact list at the bottom of this page.
For all of our new Scouts this Spring, if you sign-up between April 1st and December 15th, 2024 we will cover the $5 of the Membership Fee.  Make sure to use the coupon/promo code kid5 when they go to the final payment page. This will also include any youth that renews their membership in this year.
