Join us to support “The Good We Do” for children & young adults! Scouts, units, family and friends are conducting a SCOUTStrong hike to show the public our commitment to the public the issues of child health and fitness.
Let's tell the world what you and your unit is doing for children and young adults by providing activities for a healthy lifestyle.
Volunteers from all over the community are working together to stage this event. The stage will not be fully complete without you!
The event also offers us an opportunity to fund our unit programs while also providing funds to improve, grow and assure that Scouting thrives in our community. All of us are working to promote scouting we have an opportunity to sustain and strengthen our programs in our community. Starting with your unit. Half the money goes is to unit programs. The other half goes to community wide scouting support. Units can use the money however they feel will enhance their own program.
The remaining proceeds will help develop our camps, programs and unit services as well a making scouting available to more youth.
The fundraising component of this project is an excellent learning opportunity for our youth. In the future these young people will need to find ways to fund their charitable aspirations- church, school, scouting. Learning how to be a “fundraiser” is a necessary skill for leadership. It is also important to teach them that they need to learn that money is needed to fund their programs.
