The Boy Scouts of America (colloquially, the Boy Scouts) is a real-life youth organization, with millions of members and volunteers throughout the United States. The organization and its members appear in The Last Straw and Old School.
The Last Straw
The Boy Scouts are mentioned when Greg Heffley talks about two scout troops in his area; Troop 24, which is in his neighborhood and does mostly volunteer work and Troop 133, which is located five miles away and does mostly fun things like trips and parties. Greg tries to keep his father, Frank Heffley, from learning about Troop 24 by doing things like distracting him when they drive by it.
He joins Troop 133 along with Rowley Jefferson, and they easily get a whittling badge on the first day. Shortly after, the troop leader, Mr. Barrett, announces a father-son campout, which Greg signs up for. However, the day of the trip, he wakes up sick.
In preparation for the final night of his stay at Hardscrabble Farms, Greg tries to spy on a cabin that has a bunch of Boy Scouts in it to see if he can pick up some pointers on how to build a shelter, but is seen by one of them and apparently driven away.

- Given the fact that Greg's membership in the Boy Scouts is never mentioned after The Last Straw, it's possible that he is no longer a Boy Scout.
