Delivering the Promise of Scouting

Children growing up in our community today face a very difficult world. In these changing times, the need for Scouting is more important than ever. As our environment continues to evolve, our strategic plan, “Delivering the Promise of Scouting” is our road map.

Over 100 volunteers contributed to the development of this plan. Volunteers from the Council’s Board of Directors, the Pack/Troop/Crew level, the District level, and the community came together to develop recommendations around 8 study areas or “planks.”
