On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.

The Central Region is the administrative body that services sixty-eight local BSA councils in the Great Midwest of the United States . The territory spanned by the Central Region includes council headquarter cities in thirteen states, including all of Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota, Ohio, Wisconsin, and parts of Indiana, Kentucky, Montana, Nebraska, South Dakota, Virginia, and West Virginia. As a whole, these sixty-eight councils positively influence the lives of over 460,000 registered youth in traditional BSA programs. Included in that figure are over 24,000 Venturers in over 2,100 crews (including over 900 Sea Scouts in over 90 ships). The region works to support and sustain these sixty-nine councils as they build, support and sustain their programs. This web-based resource is aimed to support the objectives of Central Region, BSA. See the Area Pages tab above for a complete listing of councils organized by area within the region.
