Friends of Scouting
A Boy Who journeys along the Scouting
trail will experience much more than the destination. As he makes
decisions along the way from one adventure to the next, he develops life
skills and timeless values that will be his moral compass forever. The
adventure will lead him over many paths and trails helping him become a
better citizen a leader with skills in cooperation, respect of himself,
and a firm foundation of ethical behavior.
How do you support our youth in their
“Scouting Journey”? You are helping them with advancement, driving for
an outing, encouraging them, volunteering as a leader, or just being
there when they needs someone to talk to. And while doing any, of these
things, you can be a Friend of Scouting.
“Friends of Scouting” is the annual
campaign to financially support local Scouting. It costs $260 per youth
to deliver a quality Scouting program. Some of this cost includes: five
Cub Scout and Boy Scout Camp properties; Council Activities such as
Cub/Parent weekends and Scouting for Food; training programs for all
volunteers; Council Staff – who support and serve 7,000 volunteers; and
covering the cost of those individuals who are financially challenged.
Your participation in the Friends of
Scouting Campaign is an investment in maintaining and improving the
quality of the Scouting program our youth receives, helping expand the
Scouting program, and thereby improving the world. The amount you give
should be based on your belief in and commitment to Scouting and your
financial ability. Give our youth your support by funding the Scouting
program with your pledge!!
