2024 Friends of Scouting Campaign

Help us build the future of Scouting!

Your gift will ensure all youth throughout the Great Trail Council have the opportunity to experience all Scouting has to offer.

The Great Trail Council, Boy Scouts of America serves over 6,000 Scouting families throughout Summit, Portage, Medina, Northern Wayne, Trumbull and Mahoning Counties. We deliver incredible programs preparing our youth with the skills that develop values, character, leadership, citizenship, team building and fitness. It is our mission to provide these programs to all kids, including inner city and special needs youth. ​

Friends of Scouting is our annual campaign that supports all youth by helping them become the future leaders of Greater Akron and the Mahoning Valley. These funds allow us to conduct leadership training for over 2,000 adult volunteers, provide registration assistance and camperships to address accessibility and financial obstacles, support Eagle Scout service projects and maintain two camps with over 900 acres, $325,000 in program equipment, 3 pools, 3 lakes and numerous cabins and buildings.
