Scouting volunteers will visit units to share our successes from the past year, our needs for the future, and give all Scout families the opportunity to support Heart of New England Council this year. 

Families are the ones who see first-hand the benefit of Scouting for their child. A successful Friends of Scouting campaign will help ensure:

  • Your unit leaders receive the training and problem-solving support they need to keep your Scouts safe, and make your unit successful.
  • Your Scouts have access to best-in-class camping facilities, and exceptional program opportunities.
  • The Council can extend the benefits of the Scouting program to more local youth than ever before.
  • The Council is able to provide financial assistance to Scouts attending summer camp.

Strong family support helps local companies, organizations, and community leaders to recognize the importance of Scouting to youth in our communities, and make their own contributions to Heart of New England Council.
