Three Rivers Council has been helping youth become “Prepared. For Life.” since 1919.
The Council is comprised of 10 counties (Orange, Jefferson, Chambers, Liberty, Polk, San Jacinto, Hardin, Tyler, Jasper and Newton).
Three Rivers Council provides a professional field staff, a service center, a Scout Shop and a 900-acer year-round camping facility. Assistance is provided upon request to any youth needing help with program materials, handbooks, uniforms, camping scholarships or registration, regardless of socioeconomic status.
On average we serve 4,000 youth and 1,200 trained volunteers in Southeast Texas. Our youth and volunteers participate in various Scouting activities, meetings, camping, events, advancement, and career-interest programs.

Scouting is both fun and empowering; introducing young people to careers and preparing them to be active citizens.
