Adult volunteers for the Boy Scouts of America must have ACA instruction to qualify as a merit badge counselor. BSA also recommends units have at least one scouter complete PaddleCraft Safety. Pilgrim Paddles can train leaders for all segments. Units have consulted with us for planning high adventure trips on their own from backpacking in the Bighorns and canoeing in the Boundary Waters, to Philmont for backpacking or horsepacking, to Northern Tier, and to Seabase. American Heritage Girl Scouts are also happy customers. We've also trained Girl Scout leaders though we are not as familar with that program as with Boy Scouts.

Boy Scouts can earn Canoeing, Kayaking, and Whitewater Merit Badges, and Standup Paddleboarding Award through Pilgrim Paddles.
