Friends of Scouting
The friends of Scouting campaign enables the Daniel Boone Council to provide programs and services to the youth of Western North Carolina. Many young people may not get the chance to have a hands-on Scouting experience without the generosity of corporations, community members and families of current scouts.
Donations made during the annual campaign are used to help maintain Camp Daniel Boone, the council service center, provide training materials for the volunteers throughout the council, and fund other programs including Scoutreach efforts in rural and urban areas. To make a donation now visit donatenow.
