The gifts from Friends of Scouting go toward the services you use every day. For example, this site of information would not be possible if it were not for the gifts generously given collectively by the families of Muskingum Valley Council. More examples include camperships, recruiting flyers and materials, camp and scout service center administration and upkeep, and a paid staff that works diligently to assist you and your unit. It costs Muskingum Valley Council the average of $150 per scout to function and offer the services that the council provides including the most affordable summer camp experience in the states of Ohio AND West Virginia . Having a presentation gives your unit access to Muskingum Valley Scout Reservation facilities and if your unit contributes enough to reach the $45 average per scout then the ranks and advancements of the unit for the year is FREE. We ask that you discuss an opportunity for a presentor to come to a meeting where the majority of the families of your unit will be present to make the ask for gifts with your District Chairman, District Commissioner, Finance Chairman or your District Executive. The suggested opportunities include Blue and Gold Banquets and Courts of Honors.
