Orange County Council

Friends of Scouting

Here are three good reasons to support the Boy Scouts of America in Orange County:

  1. Leadership Training
  2. Character Development
  3. Make Scouting Available to All Youth in Orange County

Right now, Scouting is making a huge difference helping to keep our young people on a positive course in their life’s journey. One of the best places we’ve found to instill these important skills and values is through outdoor adventures – a place away from home where a whole new world unfolds to them.

Like local Patrol Leader Dave who explained, “Scouting gives you a lot of knowledge with different kinds of things … things you might not ever experience except at summer camp … and you learn how challenging it is to be a good leader and live life reverently!” Scouting is helping Dave become a better person!

You can’t put a dollar value on self-esteem and self-confidence. But when they’re absent, we pay a tremendous price. Please help us shape the character of young people so they can develop into responsible citizens.

Help us provide a life changing experience for one or more Scouts. Please make your most generous gift possible online today – whatever level of support is right for you.

Thank you for making a difference!
