Scouting is volunteer-RUN and volunteer-FUNDED! As one of our country’s leading youth education organizations, Scouting can only be successful with the support of the communities that we serve!

Thank you to everyone who attended our 3rd Annual Autumn Gala & Fundraiser!
It was a great evening of fun and fellowship, highlighted by a pre-75th anniversary celebration of Camp Oljato -- our Boy Scout camp in the southern Sierras! Oljato is one of the premier Scout camps west of the Rockies and has been welcoming Scouts to the shores of Huntington Lake since 1941!
The evening also featured both a silent and live auction hosted by Frank Bizzarro and Bizzarro Gala Auctions, and guest speaker, John Wilken! John, an Eagle Scout from Troop 33 in Los Altos and a junior at UC Santa Barbara, was named the 2015 NESA World Explorer, and spent this summer as the NESA Eagle Scout Arctic Marine Biologist. As a member of a research team studying Narwhals in the Arctic, John joined leader Dr. Martin Nweeia of Harvard University and the Smithsonian Institution, Dr. Winston Kuo of Harvard and several Inuit from Baffin Island, Canada on the expedition.
