New BETA “Scouting” Mobile App is available now

BSA’s Information Technology Group, along with many volunteer beta testers, are excited to announce a new Mobile App – Scouting.  This free app is available for both iPhone and Android devices.   You can download the BETA today.  Expect to see bugs and issues, that we would like you to report back to us.  This is not a perfect production release.

Search for “Scouting BSA” in the APP Store or Google Play and download today!

Scouting is focused on making it easier for youth and their parents to view and track advancement in the Cub Scouting and Boy Scouting programs—as well as youth recognition in the Venturing program.  

The app ties to and pulls existing advancement data with an enhanced user interface.  The offline capability allows parents and youth (13 and older) the ability to access advancement data anywhere at any time. 

The initial release of the app contains the following functions:

  • Track a Scout’s advancement   

  • Submit Finished Requirements to your Scoutbook leader for approval.

  • Track logs like Service Hours, Hiking, and Camping

  • View parent and/or Scout profile

  • Submit Feedback

  • Provide parent access to your Scout(s) account


Under settings, the new app also supports user default data settings, and offline capabilities.

Additional features like a Scout community, notifications, leadership, calendar, and Scout challenges are planned to be added and will be gradually introduced throughout 2018.

Report any issues with the feedback feature in the app at the gear icon.

*** You need to have a ScoutBook account to utilize the above information.***
