We’ve got news!

Now serving more Scouts!

The Yocona Area Council and Pushmataha Area Council voting members have met and cast their votes to merge into a new council serving the combined 22 counties of Northeast Mississippi!  This is a merge of two good councils that will provide more opportunities for Scouts to join and participate in strong Scouting programs.

What does this mean?

  • District Events and Council Events will continue
  • Unit Numbers will remain the same
  • Each council’s Order of the Arrow lodge will continue to operate separately for 2022
  • No Camps are being Sold
  • Service Center and Scout Shop is located in Tupelo, Mon-Fri 9 AM-5 PM

What will change?

  • The combined (and temporary) council is the Yocona-Pushmataha Council.
  • The merged council will be selecting a new name to represent the entire new council
  • There will be a new Council Shoulder Patch
  • Calendars will have to be adjusted to merge activities.  There will be more activities.
  • We are increasing to four districts: Apilachi, Chicksa, Jacinto and Pushmataha.
  • Additional camping property for units to use
