About Us & Scout Shop
Gateway Area Council serves the Coulee Region
The Gateway Area Council #624, headquartered in La Crosse, serves Scouts in Wisconsin and Minnesota.
Directions to Council Office: see map to the right. (Some GPS directions can be incorrect. Make sure you take WI 16 to Quarry Rd. You will see a sign on WI 16 saying "Boy Scouts of America")
The Scout Shop is the place to register for a program, buy uniforms or equipment, manage advancement and purchase awards, etc.
The Council is divided into two districts to serve all the units in the area.
