About the Southern Sierra Council

The Southern Sierra Council provides Scouting resources to over 1,500 youth in Kern, Inyo, and Mono counties. Services provided by the Council directly benefit local Cub Scout Packs, Scouts BSA Troops, and Explorer Posts.


The Southern Sierra Council is committed to providing support to our Scouting leaders and families with everyone’s health and safety as a paramount priority.


With the latest public health guidelines in mind, the Scout Office and Trading Post will remain open with the following measures: Curbside service is still available. A limited number of customers will be allowed inside at a time. All persons will be expected to wear a mask while on the premises. We are open from noon to 5:00pm Monday thru Friday. Contact the Scout Office via phone at

661-325-9036 or Randy.Saunders@scouting.org


As for upcoming unit meetings and activities, please check with your Chartered Organization for clearance to continue in-person unit functions and, as always, follow the current health mandates to protect all Scouts, leaders and families. Virtual meetings and activities are the safest method for Scouting at this time.


Thank you.
