The Iron Horse District serves Scouting units in the Spring and Klein (east of Kuykendahl) school districts. The Iron Horse District is located in the Sam Houston Area Council.
The Sam Houston Area Council serves nearly 60,000 youth in 16 counties in southeast Texas through dedicated service and leadership of over 20,000 adult volunteers. Scouting is completely funded by the generosity of those that believe in its mission.
The purpose of the council is to guide and support its districts for the achievement of the movement’s purpose. Councils establish policies and programs. Districts carry out the policies and programs in their respective territories. Your support of Scouting provides programs, services, professional support, as well as year-round outdoor programs – all designed to lead youth to lifelong values, service, and achievement.
The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation’s largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness.
For over a century, the BSA has helped build the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The Boy Scouts of America believes — and, through over a century of experience, knows — that helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society.
