Your council needs you NOW more than ever. The covid-19 pandemic severely limited our ability to hold program and camping events, which in turn has limited our ability to raise critical funds for our mission. By participating in the LEATHERSTOMPING FOR LEATHERSTOCKING Campaign, you are able to utilize this space to set your own goal and tell your own story as to why you are walking or hiking to support your District and Council. Tell us how far you plan to walk/hike/bike/row, etc. and where you will be going. Whether it's around your yard, your block, across your town, track or trail, each mile you travel and every dollar you raise will bring us one step closer to making sure Scouting is here for future generations to benefit from! Thank you for your support, stay safe and have fun!!
Feel free to make this space your own, but if you need to help explain why investing in Scouting is more important now than ever, please feel free to publish any/all of the following text to your own personal page.
Scouting is about character and leadership.
The Scout Oath and Law – our very foundation – call for helpfulness, bravery, common courtesy, and respect among all people. Our values call us to stand up to injustice, as we strive to help other people at all times.
The Scouting movement recognizes and celebrates that the attributes that make us different actually draw us together as Scouts, citizens, and human beings. We refuse to accept violence or injustice toward another human being.
As Scouts, we recognize that much work remains to be done. We are committed to empathy, compassion, and to meaningfully improve. Scouting teaches young people to come together to find peaceful solutions, to work to become the best versions of themselves, and to create a better world.
