Friends of Scouting

The single largest source of income in providing Scouting’s character development program to the more than 1500 youth and adults in the Bucktail Council is the “Friends of Scouting” campaign. Your investment will provide a Scouting experience that lasts a lifetime… producing strong values, strong leaders and strong citizens.  It costs $375 per youth to send a youth member to Camp Mountain Run.  Help us send 1 or more youth to camp this summer by becoming a “Friend of Scouting”.
