Welcome to the BSA National Service Territory 10 (NST 10) Website!

BSA National Service Territory 10 (NST10) serves all BSA councils in New York State. The national service territories replace the previous areas and regions and are designed to assist local councils more efficiently in all of their operational areas.

**Update 12/30/21** – We are currently transitioning, updating, and reconstructing this website for NST 10. This site is the former website of NER Area 2. Thank you for your patience during our construction period.

There is a lot going on currently in NST 10 and we are glad for you to be part of it!  It is our hope you will find the information here valuable and easy to use.  Should you wish to bring something to our attention about this site please send us a note from the “contact us” page. No matter where you are, or what your role is, thank you for your service to Scouting!

Youth Protection Reminder for Remote/Virtual Scouting

It’s critical that we all continue to keep youth protection top-of-mind whether our Scouting activities are taking place in person or through a digital platform. Of note, remember that BSA prohibits any one-on-one interaction between an adult leader and a Scout – in person, online, through a web conference, over the phone, via text, or in any other form.

Detailed youth protection information is available here. To ensure you are following safety standards for all Scouting activities, please reference the Guide to Safe Scouting.

The BSA’s Social Media Guidelines serve as a complement to our youth protection policies.
