It begins with a promise…
Every week Scouts recite an oath pledging themselves to a duty to God, country, others and self. Our Scouts are trained to be of strong character, to be environmental stewards and active citizens. Scouting provides young people with a safe, structured and nurturing environment; helps them learn and discover, while instilling strong values and a deeper appreciation of family and community. It encourages our youth to do their best and reinforces the importance of helping others at all times. The values and skills young people learn in Scouting help build a solid foundation for their lifetime.
Thank you for your moral and financial support of Scouting in the metro Denver area. A few accomplishments of the past year we’d like to highlight include:
- 53,115 youth and their families participated in one of our programs in partnership with over 850 community partners including churches, schools, community organizations and businesses.
- 10,162 adult volunteers provided their time and talents to support youth in Scouting.
- 636 Scouts earned their Eagle Scout Award (Boy Scout’s highest rank) during the Centennial of the Eagle Scout rank.
We invite you to spend some time reviewing our 2012 Annual Report to see how the Denver Area Council, Boy Scouts of America is making a meaningful impact on the lives of young people throughout Denver. America needs Scouting, and it is vital that we continue to work together to deliver the nation's foremost youth program of character development and values-based leadership training. Please keep volunteering and donating to our Investment in Character campaigns. The Scouts depend on you!
Yours in Scouting,
