Welcome! We’re glad you found our site.

BSA Troop 581 draws boy scouts from Banks, Forest Grove, North Plains, Buxton, Gales Creek and other places in Washington County, Oregon.  The Boy Scouts of America provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness. Most of all, we have fun!

Boy Scouts prove themselves in an environment that challenges their courage and tests their nerve. After they’ve been given the proper guidance from those with experience and know-how, they take their own lead, going places they’ve never gone, seeing things they’ve never seen, and diving into the rugged world of outdoor adventure, relying on teamwork and character to accomplish what everyone else thinks is impossible.
