Our Friends of Scouting annual fundraising campaign helps provide:

  • Every youth the opportunity to be a Scout, no matter their economic circumstances
  • First-class camping programs
  • Support and training for volunteer leaders
  • Recruitment materials for every unit
  • Online resources
  • Professional staff that serves every community

In Michigan we are building the leaders of tomorrow. Through Scouting’s programs and adventures, we inspire lives of leadership, character, and service. Your investment helps support our movement that instills intelligence and confidence in those who may find themselves without the knowledge or tools to successfully stride toward a promising future. As we pass the torch of the future, it is only right that we provide the skills not just to succeed but to excel.

Your pledge to Scouting helps provide:

  • Every youth the opportunity to be a Scout
  • Support and training for volunteer leaders
  • Recruitment materials for every unit
  • Online resources
  • Professional staff in every community

The Scout Oath

On my honor, I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.
