Support Scouting in Great Trail Council

Friends of Scouting Campaign
With your help, the Great Trail Council will continue to motivate young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetime. Your gift will ensure that all youth throughout our council will have the opportunity to experience all that Scouting has to offer. 

Campership Fund
Camping is a vital component of the Scouting experience. It is an opportunity for young people to build a foundation of leadership skills and personal character that will stay with them and set them up for success later in life. Help us ensure EVERY Scout gets to experience camp!

Special Events

The council hosts several special events to raise funds for our Scout programs and two beautiful camps, Camp Manatoc and Camp Stambaugh. There are different ways to get involved. Click the buttons below to find out more information about our 2024 events!

Fall Popcorn & Nut Sale
For over 34 years, Scouts throughout the Great Trail Council have been selling Popcorn and Nuts to help “fund” their year of Scouting. Many incredible trips, camp outs, trainings, and adventures have been paid for by this outstanding Popcorn Sale. Information available Fall 2023.

Memorials & Tribute Fund

Leave a lasting legacy in the Great Trail Council. A gift to our Council's Memorial & Tribute Fund is a thoughtful way to express respect, gratitude, and sincere affection. Your gift honoring a loved one, friend, and others in times of sadness or joy will enrich the lives of the over 6,000 youth served by our council.

All memorial and tribute donations will be placed in the Council's endowment, which will allow Scouting to remain strong well into the future.

Matching Gifts

Many employers will match their employees' personal donations to the Council. Even if you are retired, you may be able to still take advantage of these programs. Each company's program is different, but some may even double or triple the amount of your contribution!
