What is the Polaris District?


The Polaris District is an outreach program provided by the Northern Star Council, Boy Scouts of America, with the goal of providing inclusion support to people with special needs. We serve boys, girls, men and women of all ages and abilities. We strive towards building participants’ self-esteem, feelings of accomplishment, and increasing leader knowledge to enable successful outcomes for everyone in Scouting.

Questions about Special Needs Scouting?


If you have questions about special needs scouting in general, or about our programs, contact us via email. Also feel free to contact us if you have problems or concerns relating to special needs scouting in Northern Star Council.

The National Council has published a Handbook for Scouting for Youth with Disabilities that contains useful guidance and recommendations.

We are also developing a list of Frequently Asked Questions about scouting with disabilities or other special needs.
