What is Friends of Scouting?
Friends of Scouting is the annual campaign where the Council asks Scouting families, businesses and civic-minded citizens to support our mission of providing the Scouting program to tens of thousands of young people at the Jersey Shore.
Why should I give to Friends of Scouting?
Friends of Scouting provides roughly one-quarter of the money needed to operate the Jersey Shore Council's Scouting camps, programs and facilities for a calendar year. These camping and training facilities are the "outdoor classrooms" in which Scouts have fun, learn leadership skills and develop into better young men and women. The Jersey Shore Council spends approximately $200 per Scout each year to deliver these benefits and much more.
