Family Friends of Scouting

Family Friends of Scouting

The Family Friends of Scouting (FOS) campaign is designed to provide parents and leaders who are directly involved in the Scouting program the opportunity to learn how Scouting is funded and how funds from the campaign are used to support the operating expenses for our camp properties.. This is done at a 8 to 10 minute presentation conducted between January and April usually at a Pack Blue and Gold, Troop or Crew Court of Honor. Anytime where parents and family members are gathered is a perfect opportunity to have an FOS presentation.
