Gifts from ‘Friends of Scouting’ (FOS) help pay to keep Scouting resources available to all Scouting leaders and families. This website would not be possible without the generous support of our ‘Friends of Scouting’ donors. Other examples of your FOS gifts at work 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 an average of $150 per scout to provide these services. We have the most affordable summer camp experience in the states of Ohio AND West Virginia thanks to the support of our ‘Friends of Scouting’.
Every Scout unit is asked to schedule a ‘Friends of Scouting’ presentation. This is an opportunity for local Scouting volunteers ask the parents and leaders of your unit for their financial support. The short presentation reminds parents of the value of Scouting and gives them an opportunity to invest in a strong local Scouting program.
When your unit has a presentation, it is rewarded with free tent camping at the Muskingum Valley Scout Reservation. If your unit contributes enough to reach an average gift of $45 per scout, the unit earns free rank and advancement for the rest of the year. Just as importantly, you will know that your unit is doing it’s part to ensure quality Scouting programs are available in our council for another year.
If you are an adult volunteer you should plan to support and recognize your fellow volunteers by attending your District’s annual recognition dinner. Voluntees who have gone ‘above and beyond’ in 2013 will be recognized. Please click here for information on some of the many the awards.
