The Squirrel Scouts seem to teach basic nature survival skills, and hold friendly competitions with other organizations, such as their primary rivals, the feminine Sugar Cream Puffs. Like the real-life Boy Scouts and other parodies of the organization, merit badges are an important part of Squirrely Scout ways. Up until "Girly Squirrely", the organization did not allow or contain female scouts. However, Mrs. Turner was allowed to participate in a Squirrely Scouts competition in Who's Your Daddy? with Timmy, due to her lawyer forcing them to allow her.
Mr. Turner is the main leader of Timmy's troop, Troop #13. In Girly Squirrely, it was revealed that his whole troop was banned from the organization, likely due to Mr. Turner's negligence as a troop leader. He used his new-found wealth to buy another chance in the organization, with the catch that the troop has to get one merit badge to prove itself. They end up succeeding.
In the game, Breakin Da Rules Vicky uses the Sugar Cream Puffs to capture the Squirrel Scouts, and it is up to Timmy to free them. In the book, Scout's Honor, Remy briefly buys the troop and renames them the Remy Scouts.
Squirrely Scouts wear a uniform that consists of a blue shirt and shorts with a belt that is darker blue in colour. They also wear yellow scarves on their necks, with a hat that has a squirrel face, ears and tail. In Scout's Honor, the hat is grey while in all other appearances, it is the same shade of blue as the rest of the uniform. Another difference in Scout's Honor was the belts being black rather than blue.
