Friends of Scouting

We have kicked-off our 2018 Family Campaign with presenter training sessions! Thanks to the folks from Ohio Valley and Chief Tarhe Districts who attended training and have begun crafting their “District Story.”

Arrowhead and Buckeye are up next with presenter training sessions at their December Roundtables.

We also have another session at the SKC office on Thursday, December 14, 2017 @ 6:30pm in the Scioto Room.

Can’t wait for a session? Here’s is the training PowerPoint to quench your thirst for FOS learning…

Considering our impact, it’s easy to understand why this friend request is so important. It takes $150 to support one Scout for a year and we need 100% participation from our Scouting families to help make this happen. What would this do for the Scouting mission? It would mean we could provide better camping facilities, more training and activities, increased Scout scholarships, and many more benefits directly impacting the lives of Scouts.

A gift to our Friends of Scouting campaign helps us provide accident and general liability insurance to our Scouts and leaders, recruitment and training materials, maintenance of our four camp properties and three Service Centers, and the delivery of quality programs at the council and district levels.

To learn more about how your unit can participate in the annual Friends of Scouting campaign, contact your district executive or family Friends of Scouting chair today!

Your support of Scouting will make a difference in the lives of thousands of young people in central and southern Ohio, and northern Kentucky.  We thank you for your support!
