All registered adult volunteer Scout leaders receive Scouting magazine as part of their $15 annual BSA registration fee.* If you are a newly registered adult volunteer, your subscription will begin once your local council has processed your registration data.
Now, for only $15**, Scout parents (who are not registered leaders) and others as well — such as members of organizations that use the Scouting program; Scouting friends, supporters, and contributors; and educators, public officials and administrators, etc. — can purchase a one-year subscription (five issues) of Scouting magazine. Issues of the magazine are January-February, March-April, May-June, September-October, and November-December.
It’s also possible to order a gift subscription for someone who is not currently registered in Scouting but would enjoy reading about current activities of Scouts around the country, the latest news from the BSA National Council, and inspiring accounts of leadership experiences from Scout leaders.
