Special-Needs Scouting
A new council-committee has been created to support leaders and parents of Scouts with disAbilities. We seek to maximize experiences for Scouting participants, to promote inclusion of all members with disabilities and special needs in as many activities as possible, and to ensure the needs of participants are met. Scouting is a program of opportunities for all.
