The mission of the Potawatomi Area Council, Boy Scouts of America, in cooperation with chartered partner organizations is to help an ever-increasing number of youth mature into adults exhibiting traits of participating citizenship, character and personal fitness founded upon the moral and ethical values expressed in the Scout Oath, Promise and Law. 

The Council operates Camp Long Lake in Dundee, WI, where over 1700 Scouts attended summer camp and several other programs, last year.
