Help Provide Scouting Programs to NYC Families in Need

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has had a major impact on the lives of young men and women by instilling in them leadership skills that have shaped their character and have given them experiences and friendships that will last a lifetime.

We know that going to camp improves essential skills such as leadership, teamwork, and communication, skills that will help our at-risk youth overcome the many challenges they face.

An escape to our outdoor classrooms is out of reach financially for most of our students, even though we keep the cost as low as possible.  Your support means that we can extend this opportunity to all who want it, regardless of economic circumstances. 

As we all know, the lingering impacts of the COVID pandemic have created an extraordinarily difficult time for families, as they have faced isolation, job disruption, and grief.   Scouting has become a second family to so many of our participants, and that has become truer during the pandemic and our recovery from it.  Many of the young Scouts had limited social interactions during COVID and the only social outlet they had was a weekly Scout meeting. There is no more valuable social bonding time than summer camp. Simply put, that is where the magic of Scouting really happens.  Social skills affected by the pandemic are repaired and friendships are made.  Young people prove to themselves they can do amazing things that they may never have dreamed before. The research is clear — Scouting levels the playing field for disadvantaged kids, giving them a path to a more successful future.  We’ve seen that firsthand.
