Friends of Scouting

 

Friends of Scouting is a critical annual fund-raising campaign that assists the Patriots’ Path Council in offsetting program costs and providing quality service. The true cost of Scouting is much greater that what local dues and camping and event fees cover. All packs, troops and crews are encouraged to participate in the campaign to give families the opportunity to contribute. Schedule your presentation as part of your annual calendar and encourage participation – everything helps to support a strong Scouting program. Yearly registration fees go directly to support the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America. The Patriots’ Path Council uses the contributions made through the Friends of Scouting campaign to:

 

  • Maintain camp properties and a service center
  • Organize new Scouting units and support existing ones
  • Provide professional support and leader training
  • Distribute program resources and regular communications
  • Criminal background checks for adult leaders

Donations made through the above link are applied to the 2022 council campaign.
