Founded in 1920, Firecrafter is a service organization that serves Scouting in the Crossroads of America Council. Designed to emphasize the ideals of friendship, leadership, and service, Firecrafter teaches youth how to become a better Scout. Firecrafter is completed through self- advancement during a long-term camping experience. Consisting of two Cub Scout ranks, three Boy Scout ranks, and one honor, the program encompasses all basic Scouting skills and some unique additions. Firecrafter ranks are aligned with Scouting ranks and help to re-enforce the Scout's advancement trail.
Firecrafter in the Crossroads of America Council is divided up into three flames (East, Central, and West, one for each council section) and twelve embers (one for each district - similar in organization to Order of the Arrow Chapters).
