For over a century, Scouting has encouraged young people to reach their full potential, while teaching them to improve their communities and our nation for both today and tomorrow. The programs of the Boy Scouts of America help to positively influence the character and citizenship of young people in Bloomer and other local communities.

The first annual Bloomer Scouting Breakfast will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 25, at 7 a.m. at Main Street Cafe, 1418 Main Street, Bloomer.

Funds raised at this event help to support camps, provide leadership training for youth and adults, provide program support materials, and much more.

The Chippewa Valley Council serve ten counties in northwestern Wisconsin and is the largest youth-serving agency in the area. Over 4,300 youth are served by over 1,000 adult volunteers. The Chippewa Valley Council currently serves nearly 100 youth in the Bloomer community.
