Destin's Bass Pro Shops is a pro-active supporter of the Boy Scouts of America. From providing our front walk and gazebo in the spring and fall for CampCard and Popcorn sales, to having the entire month of June designated as Boy Scout Month, Bass Pro Shops is proud of our involvement with our local Packs, Troops, and Venture Crews.
We will be accepting donations to the Boy Scouts throughout the month of June, and a donation will enter you to possibly win a $500, a $250, or a $100 Bass Pro Shops Gift Card. 50% of the funds collected will be distributed within the local Gulf Coast Council Area, while the other 50% will be sent to the National BSA Office.
From June 12th through the middle of July, our BSA trained and approved Bass Pro Shops Associates will be teaching the Fishing and the Rifle Shooting Merit Badges to registered Boy Scouts. Pre-registration is required and class size is limited. Call (850) 269-6200 for information.
Each October on the last Saturday before Halloween, the Destin Bass Pro Shops sponsors Scout Fun Day in our parking lot. Scouting Units from all over the area set up displays, games, and other fun-to-do activities from noon til sunset. Then, just as it is getting dark, you and your family can be scared out of your wits by going through the mazes in the HAUNTED TENTS, where Scouting Units compete for the scariest theme!
Now, as part of our on-going involvement with the Boy Scouts of America, Destin's Bass Pro Shops invites interested boys and their parents to find a Scouting Unit near you, and it's easier than ever! Just search BEASCOUT.ORG, click on the appropriate category, and type in your zip code. All nearby units will be shown on a map of your local area and contact information is provided.
