|Virgin Islands Council #410|
The Boy Scouts of America local council in the United States Virgin Islands was eponymously named Virgin Islands Council. Originally part of the Puerto Rico-Virgin Islands Council, the political entities were separated administratively in 1960. 
During the late 1960s and early 1970s, Troop 152, sponsored by Saint Patrick's Church, Frederiksted, Saint Croix, formed a steel band of grammar-school-age Scouts that was managed by Vivian Bennerson. The band toured internationally.
As of 2004, the Great House in Estate Diamond, Saint Croix that served as council headquarters was deserted; possibly the destruction of Hurricane Hugo caused its abandonment. As of 2013, the council is administered by the National Capital Area Council.

The Howard M. Wall Scout Camp at Milord Point Beach on Route 62 at Great Pond Bay, in Fareham, on the southeast end of Saint Croix, is meant to accommodate up to 150 campers. It has a bath house (with two separated banks of showers and two rooms of latrines) and a mess hall. The Boy Scouts use the facility during two brief periods a year.
The US Virgin Islands Open/Atlantic Blue Marlin Tournament helps to fund the Marine Vocational Program (MVP) for the Boy Scouts.
There are plans in place to construct new indoor housing and upgrade at a cost of $500,000.
