International Scouting close to home

With the Canadian border being in close proximity to the Allegheny Highlands Council, please consider participating in a Scouts Canada event or camp.  Haliburton Scout Reserve, three hours north of Toronto, offers a fantastic wilderness experience for units looking to go outside the US for summer camp.  Learn more about Scouts Canada here.
