Friends of Scouting

When your child joins Scouting, 100% of the $24 annual membership fee is sent directly to the National Council. The Five Rivers Council must raise its own funds from Scouting families, alumni, the local community, United Way, special events, activities and programs, and product sales like popcorn.
