What is Friends of Scouting, and why is it so important to contribute to the annual Friends of Scouting Campaign?
Two great questions! Friends of Scouting (FOS) is the annual giving campaign of Columbia-Montour Scout Council and provides the necessary funds to ensure a quality Scouting program for youth. More specifically, by supporting FOS, you help keep:
- The cost of Council camps affordable
- Support camperships
- Camp Lavigne operational
- The promise of a quality Scouting experience to your son or daughter and others in Scouting
There are three FOS campaigns each year: the Family Campaign (by far the largest), the Executive Board Campaign, and the Business Campaign. Each is vital to the programs and services of the Council. The money raised through the annual FOS campaign offsets the cost of training Scouting leaders, operating the Council camp and service centers, and providing other resources to Cub Packs, Scout Troops, Varsity Scout Teams, and Venturing Crews throughout the Council.
Help keep Scouting strong by participating as a Friend of Scouting. Thank you for your generous support!
