FOS >>

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. 

The funds directly impact the quality of our Scouting program by providing resources for Scouts and their leaders to be successful. Learn about the importance of FOS and how the funds impact our youth.

Popcorn >>


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.
