Transatlantic Council, Boy Scouts of America
Combined Federal Campaign
The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling within them the values of the Scout Oath and the Scout Law. The specific mission of the Transatlantic Council is to provide that same quality program that youth would get in the United States while they are stationed in Europe, whether in a military, foreign service, or expatriate community. Py providing a quality program for Americans while stationed abroad, we really help young men and women feel like they are "at home."
The Transatlantic Council office is headquartered in beautiful Livorno, Italy, but our Cub Scout packs, Boy Scout Troops, Venture Crews, and even Sea Scout Ships, are located all across Europe, particularly in places where there is a large U.S. military population, places of foreign service, or larger cities where Americans tend to work in international settings. We serve English-speaking youth all over Europe and provide the same quality of BSA program that you would find in America. We have been established as an independent council since 1950, and we serve thousands of youth over the largest geographical territory of any BSA council. We have full-time professional staff dedicated to serving scouts no matter where they happen to be located, as well as a fine team of administrative staff at our headquarter office. Transatlantic Council offers Boy Scout summer camp experiences in some of the most beautiful camping atmospheres, such as: Kandersteg, Switzerland; Garmisch, Germany; and Walesby Forest in England. We also offer Cub Scout camping experiences through Day Camps located throughout Europe, and residential camp in Munasiedlung, Germany. Transatlantic Council also has a unique opportunity to participate in international scouting events which are hosted across Europe.
