Testimonials

"My Bear Scout is better prepared for household emergencies; he seems to know exactly what to do when anything unexpected happens."

Maria Waggoner Pack 518

"My son was shy and slow to build relationships. Now, after many activities, weekend camp-outs, and summer day camp together, my son has formed strong bonds with other boys and feels like he belongs to a special group. I love what Scouts has done for his confidence level."
