Scouting comes alive thanks to your support! 


This event ensures that youth from low-income communities can enjoy the Scouting advantage through our Scoutreach program. 

Your support will help over 1,000 Scouts enjoy fun weekly meetings, monthly outdoor activities, have trained leaders, participate in our virtual Scouting program, and receive recognition for their achievements. Scoutreach helps over 800 youth experience a week of summer camp at Camps Champlin, Norse or Yawgoog thanks to camperships. The program also supports programming to youth with special needs.


Please join us for this great event, so we can continue to provide the best youth programming option out there. 

Twenty-eight years ago, we made a forever commitment to ensure all youth, no matter the challenges they face, can enjoy the benefits of Scouting. Thanks to friends like you, more than 20,000 low-income and at-risk youth in the Narragansett Council Boy Scouts of America have had their lives improved by the Scoutreach program. 

Scoutreach's main source of funding is the Distinguished Citizen Awards Ceremony which has raised more than $6,000,000, since its inception.



Thank You to Our Committee!
