Welcome to Chester County Council

The Chester County Council serves young people in Chester County, PA and the northwestern corner of Cecil County, MD.

We have joined forces with VISTA Today to launch VISTA Leadership Megastars, a new initiative that will recognize 12 leaders who are shaping Chester County’s future through their character, service, vision, courage, passion, and humility.

Thank you to our Major Event Sponsors:
In order to facilitate the move to our new home at PARC (Program Activity and Resource Campus) in Exton, the Council store currently at Camp Ware will be closed beginning June 6th. Our usual camp stores with limited clothing and handbooks will be open at both Camp Ware and Camp Horseshoe through the summer starting June 27th. We ask that you purchase any needed supplies prior to the closing of the store, but should you need advancements during the closure period, you can purchase them at the Cradle of Liberty Store located in Valley Forge, https://colbsa.org/vfscoutshop/ We anticipate the full store will be reopening at PARC by mid-July. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation while we make this transition to our new home. We look forward to seeing you there this summer!
