Minsi Trails Council, BSA serves over 10,000 youth through the leadership of 5,000 adult volunteers. The council provides programs to youth throughout the Anthracite region, Pocono Mountains and Lehigh Valley in Pennsylvania along with western New Jersey and serves six-counties: Lehigh, Northampton, Monroe, Carbon, Luzerne, and Warren Counties. The local Scouting heritage dates back more than 105 years to 1910 when the council’s first scout troops were established in Allentown and Easton. Minsi Trails Council has three Scout camps in the Pocono Mountains: Akelaland Cub Scout Camp and Settlers Camp at the Trexler Scout Reservation in Jonas, PA and Camp Minsi located in Pocono Summit, PA. Combined, these camps serve more than 5,000 campers annually. 

Who We Serve:
• 10,000 local youth members
• 5,000 local adult leaders
• Nearly 300 packs, troops and crews
• More than 200 chartered organizations


An independent research study conducted by Tufts University reported boys involved in Scouting had a four-fold increase in character attributes like cheerfulness, helpfulness, kindness, obedience, trustworthiness and hopeful future expectations. Positive character translates into doing better in school, having higher career goals and making better life choices. In short the Tufts Study shows, Scouting Builds Character.
