Friends of Scouting: Show support and make a pledge at the April Pack meeting

A guest speak from the Friends of Scouting will be visiting us at our April Pack meeting.

What is Friends of Scouting?

Friends of Scouting is the annual campaign where the Sam Houston Area Council asks Scouting families, businesses and civic-minded citizens to support our mission of providing the Scouting program to tens of thousands of young people in Southeast Texas.

Scouting Makes a Difference

As parents, we want our children to have a great education, be safe and happy, and learn duty to God. We have just a few short years to equip them with the knowledge to make the right decisions when life presents adversity. Scouting is the perfect tool to help your children have better lives!

What your dollars fund:

The Sam Houston Area Council operates to support it’s Chartering Organizations in providing the Scouting program to the youth of our communities. Your support helps the Council provide the following and much more:

  • A staff of dedicated Scouters, charged with the responsibility to create partnerships with potential Chartering Organizations, organize and conduct youth recruiting programs, and provide service to all units by recruiting, training and motivating district and unit Scout leaders.
  • Camp Strake, Janis and George Fleming Cub Scout World, Walter Horseshoe Bend, Cockrell River Camp, Bovay Scout Ranch, and Camp Brosig. These camps provide 7,436 acres of outdoor camping facilities that hosted 225,408 nights of camping last year.
  • Provide camp scholarships to many Scouts whose leaders request assistance.
  • Handle registrations, Boys’ Life subscriptions, and special requests to the national office and other organizations.
  • Maintain a supply of literature, insignia, forms, certificates, etc., needed by the leader to carry out the units program.
  • Keep records of advancement, membership, training, etc., necessary for unit operation.
  • Produce frequent communications to keep leaders informed of latest local and national Scouting events.
  • Produce notices, minutes, agendas, etc., for district and council committees that develop programs for leader and unit support.
  • Handle phone calls and visitors for information related to unit operation and Scouting procedures.
  • Provide forms, applications, scoreboards, certificates, and literature helpful in unit program.
  • Produce district and council calendars and schedules, programs, kits, and special aids to assist leaders and their committees.
  • Make reservations for films, equipment, long-term camping, short-term camps, camporees, jamborees, high-adventure bases, training courses, meetings, Cub Scout leader pow wows, Venturing activities, annual council and district meetings, and unit leader events.
