Friends of Scouting

Troop 1577 Leaders & Parents - 


Friends of Scouting conducted their annual Friends of Scouting presentation during our meeting on March 15th. Friends of Scouting is the one time each year when families are asked to make a financial investment to support the National Capital Area Council and local Scouting programs.

As a member of Troop 1577, you are asked to pay an annual

registration fee, which is split directly for national BSA and

Troop membership dues. However, Friends of Scouting

dollars go directly toward impacting local youth and Scouting

programs. It helps to support local “behind the scenes”

expenses that our National Capital Area Council incurs, such

as; operating costs for our three camp properties (Goshen

Scout Reservation, Camp William B. Snyder, and Camp

Howard M. Wall), programs and activities like Scouting for

Food, adult leader trainings, adult leader recognition, and

youth support committees, and resources for unit, district,

and council functions, like providing camperships for Scouts

who are unable to afford the experience, daily operations of the Marriott Scout Service Center, maintaining membership records, providing Insurance, and much more.

Please consider making a donation to support scouting in your community. To learn more about the Friends of Scouting program and to make a gift please visit Make sure to mark “Powhatan” as your district and “Troop 1577” as your unit and either return the pledge card or forward your confirmation e-mail to Powhatan Sr. District Executive, Todd Bolick at
