April's NonProfit Partner - BSA Daniel Boone Council
We are proud to partner with Daniel Boone Council - BSA, this month as Featured Nonprofit Partner.
This month, we are supporting Daniel Boone Council, Boy Scouts of America. Whether learning to sew or hike a mountain, ride a bike or ride a horse, camp outdoors, or navigate the internet safely, Scouts BSA has a program to help.
The Council service area covers fourteen counties in Western North Carolina, including Avery, Buncombe, Cherokee, Clay, Graham, Haywood, Henderson, Jackson, Macon, Madison, Mitchell, Swain, Transylvania, and Yancey counties. The Daniel Boone Council has over 4,000 youth members and 1,800 adult volunteer members in the fourteen counties. There are 155 Scout Troops (grades 6 and up), Cub Packs (grades 1-5), and Explorer Posts (co-ed program for Middle and high school students with special interests such as computers, engineering, law enforcement, and medicine).
Camp Daniel Boone hosts approximately 5,000 Scouts each summer from different councils around the United States. It offers different programs ranging from High Adventure, which includes whitewater rafting and kayaking, to 54-mile expeditions with backpacking at Shining Rock, mile-high camping, and many, many other fun-filled opportunities.
