Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The goal of our organization is to deliver Scouting and Learning for Life programs of the highest caliber to the greatest number of available youth in seventeen counties of Northeast Florida.

The strategy of the North Florida Council is to leverage strong community relationships to identify and engage more social, fraternal and religious organizations as sponsoring partners which will increase the number of meeting sites and thus allow more youth to participate in the program. The strategic plan also includes identifying and securing the financial resources to operate a quality, fun and safe outdoor adventure program.

The organization has strong ties to the communities in all seventeen counties of operation. The board of directors reflects a cross-section of the community and has considerable local influence. This board supports the strategy of identifying new community partners to enroll and operate Scout meeting groups. Good historical financial stewardship has resulted in an annual surplus of operating funds and a well-funded and actively managed endowment.

In 2016 we completed $2.5 million in capital renovations to the Baden Powell Scout Reservation near Melrose, FL. These improvements have resulted in a 20% increase in summer camp attendance which will have a future positive effect on member retention.
we are currently in the middle of a three-year business plan to attract more young people to Scouting, including Kindergartners and girls ages 6-13.
