Bring a Friend

Over the past year, many Councils have found that a great way to bring more youth to Scouting is to promote our Bring a Friend program. Our own Scouting youth are our best ambassadors - itís a great opportunity for kids to engage their friends in hands-on Scouting activities. For full details check out: Bring A Friend for more details.
Register for the remainder of the Scouting year for only $99 for youth participants. Check out Join Scouts for a program near you.
