About Us

With a rich history of Scouting that dates back to 1916, the Golden Gate Area Council (GGAC) serves the Northern California Bay Area communities of San Francisco, Alameda, Contra Costa, Napa, Lake and Solano Counties and supports more than 700 local packs, troops, teams and crews. The Golden Gate Area Council was formed June 1, 2020. The Council Headquarters is located in Pleasanton, California near the 580 / 680 junction with a satellite office in Alameda.

GGAC maintains five nationally accredited camps: Camp Herms (located in the hills of El Cerrito, CA), Camp Royaneh (located near Cazadero in the Russian River area), Camp Wolfeboro (located near Bear Valley in the Sierra Nevada Mountains), Rancho Los Mochos (located in the hills south of Livermore, CA) and Wente Scout Reservation (located east of Willits, CA).  To contact Yerba Buena Lodge for general questions and information, send an email to “[email protected]“.
