Welcome to the Peninsulas Territory Service Area
Kitsap District served Scouting families from Bainbridge Island, Seabeck, Crosby, Bremerton, Silverdale, Port Orchard, Belfair, Bangor, Erlands Point-Kitsap Lake, Indianola, Kingston, Manchester, Navy Yard City, Olalla, Parkwood, Poulsbo, Suquamish, and Tracyton.
Mt. Olympus District served Jefferson County from the Hood Canal Bridge to the west including Clallam County to Neah Bay.
Now, these two Districts have merged into what is known as the Peninsulas Territory Service Area (PTSA).
There are Scouting units in every major community within the PTSA with the possibility of developing more. Registered adult volunteers are provided free training and the support needed to start new units.
If you are interested in learning more about Scouting, please contact or visit one of the Cub Scout Packs, Scouts BSA Troops, Venturing Crews, Ships or Exploring Posts in our community at Scout Me In.
Order of the Arrow Mission
The mission of the Order of the Arrow is to fulfill its purpose as an integral part of the BSA through positive youth leadership under the guidance of selected capable adults.
As Scouting’s National Honor Society, our purpose is to:
- Recognize those who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives and through that recognition cause others to conduct themselves in a way that warrants similar recognition.
- Promote camping, responsible outdoor adventure, and environmental stewardship as essential components of every Scout’s experience, in the unit, year-round, and in summer camp.
- Develop leaders with the willingness, character, spirit and ability to advance the activities of their units, our Brotherhood, Scouting, and ultimately our nation.
- Crystallize the Scout habit of helpfulness into a life purpose of leadership in cheerful service to others.
