Why Be a

SCOUT?

Current and former Scouts have always felt that Scouting has made a difference in their lives. A study by Tufts University has found that Scouting does, in fact, have a measurable, positive impact in the character development of young people.

It sought to measure the difference Scouting makes in young people’s lives as those positive changes were happening.

Friends of Scouting (FOS)

Friends of Scouting keeps our Council going! Friends of Scouting helps fund the 20% of Scouting you see- from program to uniforms and registration fees- to the 80% that’s behind the scenes like camp upkeep, communications and training.

Fund development

Contributing to the Boy Scouts of America created opportunities for youth to gain memorable experiences and become instilled with values, principles, and skills that will help them develop into the future leaders of our nation.
