BAC 100th Anniversary

Bay Area Council 100th Anniversary Celebration

In 2019, the Bay Area Council will celebrate its 100th Anniversary with a year-long celebration.

Thousands of Scouts and their families have been positively impacted by Scouting over the past 100 years and so we fully expect great interest and anticipation as we commemorate and preserve our legacy.

Preliminary planning began one year ago and some of the plans include Centennial-related programs and events - a Scout-O-Rama, a Centennial Council Shoulder Patch, and a Centennial Gala.  

Our hope is that you will be willing to help make all of this possible by being a part of underwriting this endeavor. Join the legacy.  

There are a number of opportunities where corporations can show their support for today’s youth and the Bay Area Council community. Scouting is recognized as the leading youth organization in the world and association with the centennial will benefit the corporate sponsors. Become a 100th Anniversary Sponsor.
