Scouting in Utah has a long history, from the 1910s to the present day, serving thousands of youth in programs that suit the environment in which they live.


Friends of Scouting

September and October are the months that the council requests funds for Friends of Scouting. The funds do not directly benefit the local scout groups, but rather are for the use of the scout council.

Give to Friends of Scouting to donate to the Great Salt Lake Council. To donate to your local troop, give the money directly to the local leaders (LDS members: Use a tithing slip specifying that the money is for the ward's young men).

See article in the Deseret News regarding Friends of Scouting.

Early history (1910-1950)

Utah has one of the longest running scouting legacies in the country{History of the Boy Scout movement in the Cache Valley Council area : 1909-1928, Victor Lindblad}. The first Boy Scout Troop got its start in Logan, Utah in 1910. On May 21, 1913, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' 15-month-old "MIA Scout" program was officially invited to join the Boy Scouts of America. This started the first widespread movement in Utah Scouting. By 1928, the LDS Church had designated Scouting as the official activity program for its young men.
