National BSA Chapter 11 Filing

The Cherokee Area Council has not filed for bankruptcy. Meetings and activities, district and council events, other Scouting adventures and countless service projects are taking place as usual. In short, there should be no change to the local Scouting experience. 


The National organization of the Boy Scouts of America is the only entity involved in the Chapter 11 filing. The Cherokee Area Council – which provides programming, financial, facility and administrative support to local units and individual Scouts in our area – is separate and distinct from the national organization. Our camps, properties, and all local contributions are controlled by our council.
