SCOUTING CONTINUES TO GROW
Total youth served by Dan Beard Council:
Girls Joined Cub Scouts
Girls Joined Scouts BSA
Our goal is to give every youth the opportunity to be a Scout and experience everything that Scouting, Exploring, and Venturing has to offer. In a time when youth are faced with any number of challenges, parents are looking for a place that helps to reinforce the values, ethics, and life skills that they want for their children. Scouting is about preparing youth for the world today. Our families have been excited to participate in today’s Scouting program activities, which are designed with families in mind. The Dan Beard Council was excited to welcome 896 girls to the Cub Scouts and Scouts BSA programs in 2019!

PLANNING & SUPPORT
IN 2019, 689 YOUTH WERE SERVED IN EXPLORING, a youth career experiences and mentorship program for young men and women ages 14-20. Exploring posts have a focus on a single career field, such as Law Enforcement, Fire/Rescue, Healthcare, Aviation or Engineering.
“You can actually see young people GROW, becoming members of the COMMUNITY as their CURIOSITY is satisfied through Exploring. We attract SHARP young people during their formative years.”
– Hal Shevers, Exploring Adult Volunteer
