What is Friends of Scouting?
Friends of Scouting is the annual campaign where the Central NC Council asks Scouting families, businesses and civic-minded citizens to support our mission of providing the Scouting program to tens of thousands of young people in our Council.
- I already paid my child's registration and his unit collects annual dues.
Haven't I already supported Scouting?
Your child's registration fee goes directly to the National Office of the Boy Scouts of America. If your child's Scout unit collects dues, that money stays with the unit to help pay for trips and other activities. None of that money helps the Council pay for:
- Maintaining our camping properties at Camp Barnhardt and Camp Cabarrus.
- Training thousands of adult volunteer leaders in areas such as Youth Protection, Cub/Boy Scouts Specific Leadership, New Leader Essentials, Outdoor Leadership Training and much more.
- Providing programs like Cub Scout Day Camp and Boy Scout Summer Camp.
We need your support!
