Scout Parent

What is the ScoutParents Mission?

The ScoutParents mission is to develop and implement methods which encourage and empower Scouting participants to help maximize the number of dedicated Scouting youth and parents and mentors as dedicated Scouting volunteers who participate with their Scouts.

What is a ScoutParent?

A ScoutParent is a parent or adult mentor of a Scout who enthusiastically participates with their Scout and also helps other volunteers to provide the best quality program experience to all youth in every unit.

         A ScoutParent:

  • Leads their family in obtaining the values, benefits, experiences and rewards from their family’s Scouting participation, and in sharing these with others;
  • Enjoys participating with his or her Scout and inspires their child to persevere in Scouting with their tenure, activity participation, and achievement; and
  • Helps enhance youth and parent-mentor recruitment, retention, enthusiasm, commitment and participation in the passionate GREAT Family FUN of Scouting!

How can I help Scouting and ScoutParents?

Enjoy participating in Scouting as a dedicated Scouting volunteer!
