Dear Scout Parents,


Scouting provides many rewarding opportunities for your son to discover the ability to lead, to teach, and to instill confidence in others.  For the past 100 years, the Heart of Virginia Council, Boy Scouts of America, has provided programs designed to prepare young people for life!

The success of Scouting in Central Virginia depends on those who support it. That includes the work of adult volunteers, the encouragement of parents, and the financial investments from Friends of Scouting! Your support is needed now more than ever, to provide a quality Scout program to over 12,000 young people in 24 counties and 4 cities across central VA.
