Las Vegas Area Council is a local council (#328) of the Boy Scouts of America located in the states of Arizona, California, and Nevada.

Council History

Formerly Boulder Dam Area Council, Las Vegas Area Council serves Scouts in Nevada, California and Arizona. The Boulder Dam Area Council (#328) was started in 1944 with fewer than 500 youth. The former council offices were in cramped spaces on the UNLV campus, but in 2002 they moved into the new facility. The Donald W. Reynolds Scouting Resource Center was dedicated on Friday, May 3, 2002. The new facilities are located at 7220 South Paradise Rd, Las Vegas, NV 89119. The name of the council was changed to the Las Vegas Area Council in 2005. It currently serves youth in Clark and Nye counties of southern Nevada, southeastern California, and western Arizona.
