The Cradle of Liberty Council is a volunteer-driven organization providing formative, age-appropriate experiences to young people from every community throughout Philadelphia, Montgomery and Delaware Counties. Scouting is designed to foster learning, team building, resilience and personal responsibility. The council is welcoming and accessible to all youth and their families regardless of interests and abilities.

We offer exciting Scouting adventures for boys and young men and women that teach character, citizenship, fitness, and leadership.
