There are two Boy Scouts of America local councils in Montana. All of Montana lies within Western Region, except for Daniels and Sheridan counties, as part of Central Region.

Montana Council

Montana Council formed in 1973 from the merger of four councils, including Vigilante Area Council and the North Central Montana Council.

The main council office is located in Great Falls, Montana.

The largest of its council camps is K-M Scout Ranch (pronounced K bar M), is located 23 miles north of Lewistown, Montana near the old mining town of Kendall.

The Council also offers a high adventure backpacking program at the Montana High Adventure Base (MOHAB) operated by the Boone and Crockett Educational Foundation based at the Elmer E. Rasmuson Conservation Center at the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Ranch, just east of the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex and near Dupuyer, MT. The program began in 2005, and became affiliated with the Montana Council in 2009. Scout troops from any council may participate.
