BeAScout.org and Online Registration

Updating your unit information in BeAScout.org

Updating your BeAScout.org «pin» is simple, and it’s a good way to make sure your information is current. Displaying last year’s Cubmaster or meeting time doesn’t exactly impress new families interested in joining.

We call it a «pin» because when families search BeAScout.org and ask to find Scout units within a certain number of miles around their address, the answers are listed next to a map with what looks like pins marking the location of each unit.

All unit leaders and committee members have access to update your unit’s pin. To update your pin:

  1. Go to My.Scouting.org
  2. In the drop-down menu, select your unit, then Organization Manager.
  3. On the next screen, selection Unit Pin on the left-hand side to see the fields you can update.
  4. Enter all the updated information for your unit and then click save at the bottom of the screen.
  5. Note that it may take a few hours, or up to overnight, for the updated information to show up.

If you’d like a more detailed step-by-step guide, here are instructions from the Boy Scouts of America.
