Support Scouting in South Jersey
The vision of the Garden State Council is to offer exciting, fun and values-based experiences of the highest caliber to the greatest number of youth possible.
The mission is to deliver the highest quality youth program of character development and leadership training, and to prepare young people to make ethical decisions, so they can reach their full potential and better serve their family, community and country.
It costs the Garden State Council about $200 per member annually to deliver Scouting to the young people in the six-plus counties we serve. We invite you to consider an annual gift of support to keep Scouting the most cost-effective, comprehensive youth development program on the planet.
For more information, please contact Garden State Council’s Development Director Joyce Skradzinski.
Scouting units in Cumberland County are served by the Old Colony District of Garden State Council.
