Help the Chickasaw Council “Be Prepared”
to meet the needs of our Scouts
Since 1916, the Chickasaw Council has had a long tradition of teaching values to young people throughout the Mid-South such as environmental stewardship, leadership, community service and personal achievement. In order to deliver a quality program, the Chickasaw Council must provide a wide variety of resources to the volunteers and chartered partners who work directly with youth.
