Scouting has continued on despite the COVID-19 pandemic. We continue to look to and rely on institutions and individuals that instill values, character, and leadership. For over 110 years, Scouting has prepared youth for life, and helped them have once in a lifetime experiences, make friends and grow physically, mentally, and spiritually. Let us put a focus on what Scouting does best – give back to our communities – so that we can make a positive impact and remind our neighbors of why Scouting matters.
