2009 Annual Report - Chester County Council


2009 Annual Report - Chester County Council



We are pleased to bring you this Annual Report covering the activities

of the Chester County Council, Boy Scouts of America for 2009.

Our achievements were made possible through the commitment and

dedication of an excellent professional staff and more than 3400

volunteers who deliver an outstanding Scouting program to the

youth and families in our communities.

Sincerely yours,

Russell H. Neubauer

Council President

From The Council President

Our Scouting programs remain among the best in the nation. We approach the 90 th

percentile of all councils in America for the percentage of youth in our Cub Scout program

and are at, or above, the 95 th percentile for the percentage of youth in our Boy Scout

program and in all Scouting programs; the percentage of Boy Scouts who attend summer

camp; the percentage of Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts who advance in rank; and the

percentage of youth and units that stay in Scouting.

In 2009 we continued to work our 2008 - 2012 Strategic Plan to ensure the continuation of

our strong, vibrant Scouting programs. We are focused on recruiting the right volunteers

and have developed succession plans to ensure that we continue to have strong leadership

for each unit, district, and council position. We make sure that our leaders are properly

trained and supported so that they can deliver an outstanding Scouting program to our

youth. We are continuing to improve and strengthen our camps and camping programs in

order to attract and serve more youth, while we continue to ensure proper conservation and

management of our natural resources. We are taking steps to ensure that we remain a

strong, financially sustainable council by addressing the areas of revenue generation, fiscal

capacity, and good governance.

Since Scouting started in Chester County Council over 90 years ago, it has been our mission

to prepare young people to make ethical choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the

values of the Scout Oath and Law. Our council has become known throughout America for

the high percentage of youth we serve, our long tradition of delivering quality Scouting

programs, and for the strength of our fiscal management. We are proud of our programs

and progress, and we are confident that, with your continued interest and support, we will

build on our traditions and expand to better serve our youth and our communities.

To our Community and Scout Families

The values of Scouting are embodied in the Scout Law.

The twelve points of the Scout Law, a cornerstone of the

Boy Scout program, serves as a guide for the lives of

many. Understanding and agreeing to live by the Scout

Law is one of the joining requirements a young man

completes before becoming a Scout. These words are as

relevant today as when our founders decided on the

final points in 1911, one full year following the start of

the Boy Scouts of America.

In 2009 Membership held steady through retaining more

members during rechartering in the spring and another

solid recruiting effort in the fall. While growth is

important, I think you will agree that retention of our

customers (Scouts and their families) is even more

important. The Chester County Council is the number six

Council in the entire Northeast Region and one of the

top in the country, with over 77% of our families voting

to stay in our program each year! We were recognized

as a good steward of the funds entrusted to us by

achieving the Fiscally Sustainable Council Award. Our

success is due to strong partnerships with more than

140 chartered organizations, the support of our

communities and the dedication of our more than 3,400


Exemplified by the Scout Law, the Chester County

Council and the Boy Scouts of America continue to

invest in the lives of young people in spite of challenging

times. Would things be better today if more people

understood and lived by the twelve points of the Scout

Law? We believe they would. Our mission is to provide

more young people with the opportunity to understand

and live by the Scout Law.

Committee Reports

Camping Committee

In spite of the year’s economic circumstances,

2009 turned out to be an extremely encouraging

one for the Horseshoe Scout Reservation, although

not without some surprises. A significant increase

in Boy Scout attendance, attributed to improved

marketing of the values of both our traditional as

well as our new programs, more than offset a drop

in Cub summer resident camping, which is

generally still regarded as a far less necessary Cub

activity and one requiring far more parental

commitment for the younger Scouts vs. other

options. Based on maintaining a highlycompetitive

pay scale, we saw over 50% summer

staff retention, recognized by us as well as at

Regional levels as a critical component of any

successful camp.

From a financial perspective, our reservation

exceeded the one million dollar mark for total

income in 2009. This included summer & weekend

camping fees, trading post sales, easement

investment fund pay-outs, sale of timber, farming

leases, special events fees and other income

streams developed and fine-tuned over the past

few years.

While a number of BSA camps across the country,

some not too far away from us, are closing down

due to lack of a long-term vision and commitment

to that vision, the Horseshoe Scout Reservation

remains vibrant and financially-viable. It has been

and will continue to be your efforts that play a

critical role for the Horseshoe Scout Reservation

with your dedication to insuring the sustaining of

successful program delivery and facilities operation

while keeping camp affordable and accessible for

our youth.

The Chester County Council Camping Committee

thanks the board and all its supporters and

volunteers for a very successful year in 2009 and

looks forward to your ongoing support in 2010 and


In Scouting,

Jim Bratcher

Executive Vice-President - Camping

Summer Camp hosted over 2,100 campers.

Committee Reports


During 2009, the Development Department, with the leadership of many outstanding volunteers,

directed the six special events below. In addition, the Planned Giving Committee served as co-host to

the BSA National Endowment art tour at Longwood Gardens and our very own Jim McErlane hosted a

successful Eagle Scout/Alumni gathering event to help kick-off the Boy Scouts of America 100 th


The Dick Vermeil Invitational Golf Tournament

We have been privileged to have nationally renowned

sports celebrity, Dick Vermeil, give the council an

opportunity to conduct a golf tournament in his name

for the past 17 years. Dick has remained committed

and very much involved with the event since its

inception. A very successful pre-tournament press

event was held several weeks before the tournament

that helped give added visibility to the event and to

its sponsoring companies.

The tournament functions with a high degree of

enthusiasm. The day began with a brunch and

concluded with a dinner and silent and live auctions.

Over 30 celebrities participated this year. The net

financial support from this event was $117,000.

Over $42,000 contributed.

Distinguished Citizen Award Dinner

Mr. Gary W. Smith, one of the most significant

contributors to the economic growth of Chester

County, was selected to receive the coveted

Chester County Council, BSA Distinguished

Citizen Award. Gary is the Executive Director

of the Chester County Economic Development

Council. Gary was honored at the

Distinguished Citizen Award Dinner (DCAD),

which was held on May 13, 2009. The net

financial support from this event was $44,500.

Net support of $117,000

Pacesetter Dinner

The Annual Pacesetter Dinner was held on April 28, 2009

at The Inn at Chester Springs in Exton, PA. The guest

speaker was Kevin Reilly, former Philadelphia Eagles

player, radio personality and motivational speaker. It was

a tremendous success, raising $42,300 while identifying

new friends and re- engaging former donors.

Run For Scouting

The annual Run for Scouting was held on

Sunday, September 20, 2009 at East

Goshen Township Park and was attended by

more than 400 runners, walkers, and 300

spectators. Our loyal sponsors and

volunteers produced a wonderful day of

outdoor activities and friendly competition,

and produced $15,300 in net revenue for

our council operations.

Veterans Day Recognition Breakfast

This special breakfast is to honor and recognize

America's finest, our veterans. This year the

guest speakers were Drs. Vince & Vance Moss.

Drs. Moss, identical twins, are former altar

boys, Eagle Scouts, civil air patrol cadets, U.S.

Army reservists, and doctors in New Jersey.

They have been featured in numerous print and

media articles and television features as well as

being chosen ABC’s persons of the week in

February 2008. 2009 saw over 170 attendees,

while raising $2,900 for Scouting.

Physical Fitness is one focus area of the

Scouting program.

Gala & Auction

The 20 th annual Gala & Auction, which is the

council’s oldest fundraiser, was held at the

Penn Oaks Golf Club in West Chester, PA.

This event is designed to be both a

fundraiser and a friend-maker. It was a

spectacular evening with one-of-a-kind

auction items and bidding opportunities as

we kicked-off Scouting’s 100 th Anniversary

and raised much needed funds for the

Scouting programs in Chester County. The

proceeds from this event contributed

$30,600 to the council’s operating budget.

Committee Reports

Multicultural Markets

The Multicultural Markets volunteers went “above and

beyond the call of duty” in gearing up for our 100th

Anniversary of Scouting, striving to maintain a high-

quality program while making sure everyone was having

fun. The following is a glimpse at the continued success

and development of the Multicultural Markets.

All our character enriched curriculums lead to the Valor

Cup Soccer Tournament, which was held at YSC Sports

Academy at no charge for the event, with access to their

five fields, professional trainers, referees and entire


Valor Cup attracts hundreds.

The new partnerships acquired through the Valor Cup: YSC Sports, Philadelphia Union

(Major League Soccer), Dole Mushrooms, Inc., Angelo’s Soccer Corner, Nike, Vitamin Water,

Genuardi’s Pizzeria and Handle’s Ice Cream. The program was highlighted on Channel Six

Action News, The Kennett Paper, and the Chester County Press.

Our recruiting efforts resulted in increasing our membership from 282 Scouts in 2008 to

291 Scouts in 2009.

We unfolded our Activity / Advancement Collaboration Model and we had 80% of

Scoutreach units collaborating in 2009 with traditional units. We had 11 of the 12 units, not

counting the two new units chartered in the end of 2009, gain the honor of being recognized

as Quality Units. In Southern Chester County we attained a 70% membership retention

rate in addition to increasing advancement from the previous year of 94 recordings to 123.

There were two new chartering partners created: Spring of Eternal Life in Phoenixville and

Elmwood Gardens in Coatesville. And finally, the program achieved the Northeast Region

Presidential Scoutreach Award.

123 Rank Advancements. Attained 70% membership retention.
