Benefiting Scouting in McHenry County

These funds provide Scouting programs to over 3,500 youth in McHenry County. All Scouting programs are for boys and girls ages 5-18 and teach life skills and leadership but Scouting goes beyond that and encourages youth to achieve a deeper appreciation for service to others in their community, country, and the world. Scouting provides youth with a sense that they are important as individuals. All funds raised are directly allocated to scholarships, participant insurance, and program supplies to continue to make the Scouting programs in McHenry County sustainable and everlasting with a NET goal of between $5,000 - $10,000 in funds raised.
