Annual Giving -Friends of Scouting

The Annual Friends of Scouting Campaign provides Scouters, parents, alumni, businesses and community members with an opportunity to support the programs and facilities of Gamehaven Council.

The true cost of Scouting is much greater than what local dues or event and camping fees cover. Yearly registration fees directly support the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America and help provide program development and research, literature and other resources.  The Friends of Scouting campaign gives individuals and businesses the opportunity to contribute to Gamehaven Council at a level of their own choosing according to their interest and ability to give.

Your Friends of Scouting Contribution Helps to:

  • Keep camp and activity fees affordable for all families

  • Offer support and training for our volunteer leaders who make the program possible.

  • Provide camp scholarships for youth needing assistance.

  • Making Scouting possible for at-risk youth.

  • Give a safe and fun experience with insurance for Scouting activities.

  • Ensure a trained and dedicated professional staff.

  • Maintain camp properties.

For over 100 years, Scouting programs have instilled in youth the values found in the Scout Oath and Scout Law.  Today these values are just as relevant in helping youth grow to their full potential as they were in 1910.  Scouting helps youth develop academic skills, self-confidence, ethics, leadership skills, and citizenship skills that influence their adult lives.
