Theodore Roosevelt Council is one on the nation’s oldest Boy Scouts of America (BSA) local councils. Founded in 1917, the original name of this council had been the Nassau County Council as it provides its services to the boy scouts of Nassau County. However, in 1997 the name was changed the Theodore Roosevelt Council in honor of the former US President who was also a founding member of BSA. The council covers four districts: Iroquois, Pequott, Rough Rider and Shelter Rock. Through participation in various outdoor activities, educational programs and career-oriented programs scouts develop character and are taught self-reliance, citizenship. Boy Scout summer camp is held at Onteora Scout Reservation during July and August. Merit badge programs offered at Onteora include canoeing, lifesaving, swimming, first-aid, leatherwork and wood carving, fishing, personal fitness, wilderness survival, astronomy and space exploration, backpacking, camping, cooking, archery, and many, many more.
