23,000 Scouts Need A Friend
Considering our impact, it's easy to understand why this friend request is so important. It takes $150 to support one Scout for a year... We need 100% participation. What would this do for the Scouting mission? It would mean that we could provide better camping faqcilities, more training and activities, increased Scout scholarships, and many more benefits directly impacting the lives of Scouts.
Friends of Scouting is the annual giving campaign of the Simon Kenton Council, BSA. Your support of Friends of Scouting helps us to ensure a quality program for the 23,000 youth we serve.
A gift to our Friends of Scouting campaign helps us provide accident and general liability insurance to our Scouts and leaders, recruitment and training materials, maintenance of our four camp properties and three Service Centers, and the delivery of quality programs at the Council and District levels.

District Friends of Scouting Campaign
- Family: $0- Goal is $0
- Community: $0- Goal is $0
- District Leadership: $0- Goal is $0
District Leadership Campaign: This is where we ask the volunteer leadership of the district to help support the district through their direct contributions. Many of our leaders give in several different campaigns.
Community Campaign:This campaign includes community leaders and individuals, as well as businesses who support the work or Scouting. They help by giving sometimes through direct contributions and sometimes through sponsorship of special events.
Family Campaign:This is where we ask the families of our current scouts and unit level volunteers to help support the district through their direct contributions. A team of volunteers actually visit each unit and conduct a presentation sharing the story of Scouting and to explain how they can help support the district and council.

Simon Kenton's Scouts help the council to be one of the top popcorn selling councils in the nation, selling more than $2.7 million in popcorn each year. Our Scouts sell popcorn to help fund their Scouting program via door to door, storefront, and take order sales from family, friends and neighbors. The annual popcorn sale is the one major opportunity Simon Kenton Council Scouts have to raise money for camp, activities, uniforms, equipment and special trips
