Scout Troop 586 is an adventure for boys and girls ages 11 to 17. Our scouts explore the world, have fun, and prepare for the future.

Cub Scout Pack 586 is a fun and exciting learning experience for boys and girls in kindergarten through 5th grade.

Through the Scouts, B.S.A. and Cub Scout program, our aims are to provide positive opportunities for character development; learning how to be a good citizen of our communities; and improve personal fitness using the outdoors as our foundation for teaching.


Scout Troop 586 is a year round program for boys and girls ages 11 - 17 and Cub Scout Pack 586 is for boys and girls in grades k- 5 in southern Jefferson County area of New York State. Our mission is to provide opportunities for our scouts to explore the World, strengthen their character, improve fitness and build good citizenship in their community.  We accomplish this through fun, exciting outdoor activities.


What type of fun do you like to have? Our scouts participate in activities like fishing, camping, hiking, biking, downhill skiing, canoeing, kayaking, and rock climbing. You are encouraged to explore the things you think might be fun!  Many of our scouts have earned merit badges in rifle, shotgun and archery. Swimming, first aid, life saving are some other merit badges our scouts earned 


Scout Troops are scout led! Adult leadership provides guidance and direction but we let the scouts, within their abilities, plan and lead our program. We believe it is important for scouts to build confidence and knowledge by testing their skiills and sometimes this includes failure. We encourage our scouts to participate in scouting leadership development outside of our troop too.
