Why you Should Join!
Why should you join Scouting anyway?? In a word, FUN!! Scouting is a great way to enjoy the outdoors, providing access to lots of opportunities you'd never have otherwise. All of Scouting's fun has a purpose, as well: helping young men and women learn and grow into productive citizens of their communities, the nation, and the world. Check out our website for more information on our programs.
Joining Scouting is as easy as picking up the phone. We'll quickly have you in touch with the leader of a Scouting unit that's right for you. You can call the Rainbow Council Service Center at (815) 942-4450 between 8 am and 5 pm Monday through Friday. One of the professionals there will put you directly in touch with the unit leaders in your neighborhood. They can also answer any questions.
If you want to find out more before you call, or want to get directly in touch with a leader in the unit you're interested in, visit our Rainbow Council Units page. There, we have a complete list of all Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops, Varsity Teams, Explorer Posts, and Sea Scout Ships in Rainbow Council. You can send an e-mail directly to the Units page which will go straight to the unit leader, if s/he has email access, or to the Scout Service Center, if the leader does not.
Provides an educational outdoor program to youth through local community initiatives.
