Submit Scout Stories

Is your son the hardest working Scout? Is your daughter the toughest Venturer/Explorer? Are you a leader with the best Troop in Orange County? Prove it.

The Boy Scouts in Orange County always have phenomenal stories, but we need your help to tell them and let the community know the positive impact Scouting has on our community. Let the community know that Scouts do more than just sell popcorn!

We want our followers to know how great Scouting is, so send us your stories and pictures! Fill out the form below or mention us on your social accounts at @OCBoyScouts and we will share the posts you’ve tagged us in.

Now is your time to brag about your troop and all their accomplishments!

Boys’ Life Magazine:

Tell us about your unit’s outing plans: Boys’ Life Outings

Tell us about your unit’s service project: Boys’ Life Service Project

Know somebody who’s making headlines?: Boys’ Life Headliners

Send story ideas to Scouting magazine: Scouting Magazine Story Idea

Publishing Tips:

Download our Press Release Template to help you get started on submitting your own press release.

Be sure to include Who, What, Where, When & Why.

Going on a big outing? Let the editors know a minimum of 3 months before your trip!

Appoint a Scout in your Unit as the communications officer. Boys’ Life and Scouting Magazine are more likely to cover a story submitted by a Scout than any other source.
