The Chester County Council was first chartered in 1919 and has a rich heritage of building leadership skills in youth!
The Chester County Council, which began in January 1919, serves Chester County, PA and the northwestern corner of Cecil County, MD.
The Boy Scouts' vision is to prepare every eligible youth in America to become a responsible, participating citizen and leader who is guided by the Scout Oath and Law. We achieve this through thousands of dedicated, talented volunteers and a small number of professional staff. In 2016 we were in partnership with more than 110 community organizations, had 5,700 youth members and 2,600 adults volunteering their time to deliver those quality-run programs.
Our Council Service Center is located on South Concord Rd. just off the Westtown Rd. exit of US 202, in West Chester. Our service center includes a Trading Post where you can find patches, literature, and uniforms helpful to Scouting families and volunteers. Click here to visit the Trading Post.
The service center hours are 8:30 am to 5 pm Monday -Thursday, and 7:30 am to 4 pm on Fridays. We are closed Saturday and Sunday. For more information on activities and upcoming events stay connected on
