Making Scouting on the Mid-Peninsula Possible!

Scouting builds good citizens!

“On My Honor, I Will Do My Best…”
Every week, our Scouts raise their hands and make a promise which becomes a lifelong commitment.

About half of Pacific Skyline Council's annual budget is raised through Community donations: families, businesses, and special events.

Friends of Scouting accounts for 50% of the donations needed to operate the Scouting programs. The council:

  • Raises 100% of its funds locally
  • Receives no National Boy Scout funding
  • Uses ALL of the dollars raised to support local youth
  • Spends $200 per youth each Scouting year
