Welcome to Great Rivers Council

Boy Scouts of America has been shaping the youth of America for more than a century. Discover everything Scouting has in store for you!

Headquartered in Columbia, Missouri, Great Rivers Council, Boy Scouts of America serves the youth and adult volunteers in 33 counties in central and northern Missouri. Our mission is to provide character development, citizenship training, and growth in physical, mental and spiritual fitness, to help create the next generation of leaders.

The Great Rivers Council is home to Invention Scouts and the only Sinquefield Invention Campus in the Boy Scouts of America. Our Invention Campus provides access hi-tech equipment, computer lab, 3D printers, laser engravers, CNC routers, embroidery machines, Scan-n-Cut machines, welding, metalworking, and more.


The Annual Sporting Clays Tournament is held at Midway Farms. The day begins with breakfast and clays on one course or come out and grab lunch and clays on the course. This sold-out event features four different flight times to choose from. Also try your hand at the five stand. Come join us for a day packed with shooting, prizes, auctions, games, and raffle drawings.

Join us July 26th – July 31st, 2021 at the Lake of the Ozarks Scout Reservation for National Youth Leadership Training, Scouting’s premiere youth leadership training!

NYLT is a six-day course. Activities and training are delivered by youth staff in an outdoor setting with an emphasis on fun and immediate application. The course is modeled as a “month in the life of a troop/crew”. Scouts and Venturers will experience patrol and unit leadership throughout the week.

Summer camp is the highlight of the Scouting year. Young men and women join Scouting to get outdoors, and Camp Hohn at Lake of the Ozarks Scout Reservation is a wonderful environment for Scouts to interact with the Scouting program, the natural world, and each other. It is a golden opportunity to celebrate their year of Scouting. 

Please contact Dennis Kerns at dennis.kerns@scouting.org and Charles Wood at charles.wood@scouting.org with any questions.
