North Star District

The North Star District is part of the Occoneechee Council, serving Scouts in Wake, Franklin and Warren counties of North Carolina.  We are home to over 80 Scouting units serving over 1,600 youth.

Our units are made up of Cub Scout Packs, Scouts BSA Troops, Venturing Crews, and Explorer Posts that fit the needs of all. We are very proud of our youth and strive to continue to build and shape tomorrow’s leaders!

The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is … to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

Words to Live By ...

Be Prepared… the meaning of the motto is that a scout must prepare himself by previous thinking out and practicing how to act on any accident or emergency so that he is never taken by surprise.

— Baden-Powell
