The Knox Trail Council, Boy Scouts of America, provides educational programs that build character, teach participatory citizenship and develop personal fitness.
Cub Scouts (boys ages 6 to 10), Boy Scouts (boys ages 11 to 18), Venturers (boys and girls ages 14 through 20), and Learning for Life (LFL) (boys and girls ages ages 6 to 10) participate in action-oriented programs that fulfill the aims of Scouting. Exploring (boys and girls ages 14 through 21) focuses on career choices, such as law enforcement, firefighting, medicine or other areas.

The Council’s two camps, the E. Paul Robsham Scout Reservation (Camp Resolute & Adventure Day Camp) and Nobscot Scout Reservation offer Scouts more than 800 acres of beautiful forested land and wilderness for a wide variety of outdoor programs including camping, hiking, swimming, boating, rappelling, rock climbing, ropes courses and horseback riding.
The Council’s geographic area includes 21 cities and towns in Eastern Massachusetts. Approximately 7,000 young people participate in Council Scouting programs on an annual basis. More than 2,000 adult volunteers provide leadership for 200 units — Cub packs, Boy Scout troops, Venturing crews, and LFL groups. Units are licensed or chartered to community organizations, such as schools and churches.
