Scouting 365

Scouting everyday in some way.

Here in the LHC, we are working to promote core Scouting principles in innovative ways, while spearheading an exciting new campaign to engage Scouts, potential Scouts, their families, and community members more fully in the original principles established by the national Scouting America organization. That’s because these principles are anything but arbitrary: they are the Scouting way of life, and they work not only to promote Scouting, but to strengthen the lives and futures of Scouts—and everyone around them.

What is Scouting 365?

The concept of Scouting 365 is simple: Scouting Every Day In Some Way. This motto embodies the LHC’s commitment to living life the Scout way, which ultimately benefits all Americans. It means that even when they’re not directly participating in Scouting activities, Scouts will find minor and major ways to use their skills, help other people, keep themselves physically and mentally healthy, and demonstrate a firm moral compass. This includes not only doing the right thing and honoring your beliefs, but treating all people with respect.

Championing Scouting Values Today

From the inception of its predecessors and today, we have worked to lead by example in upholding the original Scouting America core values. These are reflected not only in how it practices the Scout Oath and Scout Law, but in how it works to make Scouting programs accessible and beneficial to every eligible child in the regions it serves. 

Laurel Highlands Council does this in part by fostering a culture of diversity and inclusion that makes participating, volunteering, and working in the Scouting program enriching for everyone. It respects and honors perspectives related to race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, socio-economic status, religion, physical ability, and political belief. The LHC seeks to create a positive and welcoming environment for all, which it believes is among the most important of Scout values

This is also part of the Laurel Highland Council’s two-point vision:

    1. To put Cubs in Dens, Dens in Packs, and Packs in churches and synagogues in EVERY community it serves.
    2. To build sustainable financial mechanisms that re-invest in “number one”—its Scouts.

As a result of its efforts,we have grown our membership this year. Enrolling your child in one today can benefit them in rich and lasting ways. As a Scout, your child will:

    • Learn to be a community servant
    • Show leadership at school, at home, and in their community
    • Tap into their creativity and capability, building self-esteem and key life skills
    • Become a wilderness survivor
    • Become a steward of the environment and an expert in safety and preparedness

Your Support

Your support enables children to explore, learn the importance of community service, and participate in real-world outdoor experiences, but that’s just the start. We are “Scouting Every Day in Some Way,” and we are inviting you to do the same. Maybe you’re planning a pack meeting, helping with an Eagle Scout Project, or sharing your support of Scouting financially. We want to ensure that Scouting has an impact every day this year. Become a part of the Scouting 365 journey to support and inspire leaders of tomorrow. When you support Scouting, your investment helps lead a movement that instills knowledge and confidence in our young leaders of tomorrow in a world that could use a little bit more of both qualities right now.

The true cost of Scouting is much greater than what local dues or event and camping fees cover. Yearly registration fees directly support the National Council of the Scouting America and help provide program development and research, literature and other resources. 

Your generous tax deductible gift to the Laurel Highlands Council, which provides direct funding for Scouting’s life-changing programs, is a statement about your belief in Scouting and helping young people grow into successful adults.

Please help keep Scouting strong by making an investment in our community’s future and help ensure the continued legacy of Scouting in the Laurel Highlands Council.
