We are Hiring at the Rockford Scout Shop

Working for the BSA is always an adventure. Working for the Scout Shop is not just a retail sales job. You get to help volunteers on a daily basis navigate the BSA Programs.

Job does require some sales experience, cash handling, sewing experience (we can teach) the ability to have fun and help customers find what they need and items they didn’t know they needed.

We are looking for a few good people to share their love of Scouting this fall. Recruitment season is just around the corner and we need people to help guide the new Scouts and Scouters in their journey with uniform needs.

Looking to be part of a positive workplace, have a flexible schedule, get great discounts, and help to move Scouting forward? Come down to the Rockford Scout Shop, grab an application, and ask to speak to Christine.



You know how we feel about always being prepared — especially around the holidays! Knock out your gift list in one fell swoop with our Holiday Gift Guide.

Between 11/21/21 and 1/1/22 you can save 25% on each pair of Thorlos when you buy 2 or more pairs. These socks make great gifts for everyone you know, they cushion your feet for hiking, but think about everyone who stands on their feet all day. Anyone in retail, health industry, teachers, construction workers and so many more will love these socks. Both the Rockford and Crystal Lake store are also taking donations for veterans and the homeless shelter, many veterans come home and have no where to go, they need a little help to reengage into society, and many of the homeless in the area will be cold this winter, help them prevent foot problems with a pair of new socks. Just tell us where you want your donation to go to.



Choose a name from the Giving Tree at your local Scout Shop, and donate essential items to Scouts in need. When you give to local Scouts, you not only provide to them, but also empower them to give back to their community. Embrace the spirit of giving this holiday season. The Giving Tree will end on 12/17

We have a letter of need that you can fill out and bring into the Scout Shop, let us help fill all of your Scouts uniform needs this Holiday Season. Holiday Giving Tree Leader Letter (2021)

EPA AWARD 2021 YEAR ONLY – in-store now-The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has partnered with the Boy Scouts of America to create an award for members of troops, crews and ships.

This award will recognize youth who research and learn about the subjects of human health and the environment, as the EPA develops its vision for the next 50 years. The objective of the EPA award is to combine a variety of disciplines to challenge and educate youth; introduce them to the breadth of the EPA’s involvement in environmental protection and conservation; and encourage them to research, investigate, experiment, demonstrate, survey, and study air pollution, water pollution, solid and hazardous waste, and ocean dumping.
In addition to merit badge requirements, youth must participate in an environmental/public health community service project as part of an approved Scouting program(Jan. 1, 21 – Dec. 31, 21).

Completed applications must be submitted by leaders to the local Scout Shop to receive the FREE commemorative patch
