Council History

For over 100 years, the Piedmont Council has helped shape the character of youth in our community. Starting with the first organizational meeting and Boy Scout camp-out held in 1910 in Redwood Canyon, Piedmont Scouting history and that of the town itself have remained closely intertwined.

Beginning in 1910, soon after the founding of Piedmont in 1907 and the newly formed Piedmont Community Church, the Reverend John Evans Stuchell, first pastor of the church and an avid outdoorsman, was seeking a new type of organization for the boys of Piedmont. He had heard rumors of a new organization inspired by General Baden-Powell in England and decided to start one of his own.

The first organization meeting, held on October of that year, included 25 boys and parents who began a camping tradition every other weekend that sparked a movement that has impacted thousands of youth for generations.

Today the Piedmont Council serves over 1048 youth in diverse programs ranging from Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts to coed teen programs including crews for Community Service, Sea Scouts & Police Explorers.
