Our mission is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law. To achieve our mission, we create innovative programs and evolve existing ones that respond to the needs of today’s families and deliver them through dedicated volunteers in communities across the nation.



Community Service 

Every week, thousands of Scouts in the Blue Ridge Mountains Council raise thier hands in the Scout sign and make a promise. It's not a pledge to an organization; it is a lifelong commitment to themselves, thier families, and the community they share. Your financial investment, your time, and your talents to help deliver this program to make our youth are among the greatest gifts you can make. We thank you for your continued belief and support of Scouting. 

The Blue Ridge Mountains Council contributed over 30,000 hours of community service to communities across Southwest Virginia in 2018. Your donation will be used to help the youth of our communities achieve even more for the greater good of communities in 2019. 




Your Investment 

When you invest in Scouting this year, your donation will affect the lives of our youth and adult volunteers as they work to better our community. Your investment will help keep the costs down for all of our Scouts. 

The current cost of delivering the Scouting program to over 7,000 youth in the Blue Ridge Mountains Council is $200 per youth. Scouting is a cost effective and efficent youth development program that allows the whole family to participate. Friends of Scouting revenue is a critical source of income for the Blue Ridge Mountains Council Scouting Program. 


Advancement- gives boys and girls a means of measuring thier progress. They learn skills based on a standard that Cub Scouting provides. Cub Scouting has six ranks: Bobcat, Lion, Tiger, Wolf, Bearm, Webelos, and Arrow of light. Scouts BSA has seven ranks: Scout, Tenderfoot, Second Class , First Class, Star, Life, and Eagle. 

Adventure- Scouting is a great introduction to the outdoors, science, and most importantly, a lesson on thier place in the world. Cub Scouts and Scouts BSA embark on activities such as Trout-o-rees, Camp-o-rees, day camps, summer camps, and STEM activites. 

Education - Many Scouts achieve more by the age of 18 than most people do in a lifetime. Best of all, they do it not only to improve themselves, but also thier community and country. 

Service
- Scouting encourages young people to recognize the needs of others and take action accordingly. Scouting works through neighborhoods, volunteer organizations, and faith-based organizations to help young people respond to the needs of others.
