Scouting happens locally!


At the heart of Scouting are our local volunteer leaders and commissioners. These are the people who lead Cub Scout Dens, volunteer as Boy Scout merit badge counselors and work directly with our youth. Many more volunteers support them in crucial roles helping to organize our Units. Each unit is chartered to another area organization committed to helping our youth. Many churches and service organizations make Scouting possible by chartering each and every unit.


From any page on this website, you can visit some of the units in the Fox River District by clicking on their name on the right. Not every unit is listed because many do not keep websites.


Three Harbors Council is divided into 8 districts:
  • West of I-94 in Kenosha and Racine County is the Fox River District.
  • East of I-94 in Kenosha County is the Gateway District.
  • East of I-94 in Racine County is the Lighthouse District.
  • Milwaukee between Silver Spring and I94 and East of 60th is the Heart of Milwaukee.
  • Wauwatosa between Hampton and Oklahoma forms the Iron Horse District.
  • Bayside, Brown Deer, Fox Point, Glendale, River Hills, Shorewood, Whitefish Bay all make up the Polaris District.
  • Franklin, Freendale, Greenfield, Hales Corners and Oak Creek are the Root River District.
  • Bayview, St. Francis, Cudahy and South Milwaukee make up the Southshore District.

Geographically, our council is very small, yet we are very strong in numbers! Because of this excellent location, we are fortunate to be surrounded by several other very excellent councils that also help support Scouting. In the spirit of brotherhood, we link to them here.
