GM Pinewood Derby

The Urban Scouting program of the Boy Scouts of America helps over 10,000 young men in the urban core of Kansas City build strong character, a sense of citizenship and long-lasting skills to improve their lives.  One of our biggest fundraisers is our General Motors Pinewood Derby, which takes place in the Spring at the General Motors Fairfax Plant. About 300 Scouts are expected to participate in the race. This fundraiser will include a silent auction, as well as a raffle with the proceeds going to help our underserved Scouts pay for summer camp.  Donated items for the silent auction are tremendously appreciated and tax-deductible.  For more information contact Niel Campbell by phone at 816-569-4949 or email

Scout City BBQ

Since 1998 the Scout City BBQ has raised over $315,000 for the Scouting program in the Greater Kansas City area. The success of this event has made it possible to provide youth the opportunity to become Boy Scouts by reducing the cost of Scout registration, camp, handbooks, uniforms and other program essentials.

Your participation and contribution to our Scout City BBQ held at Barney Allis Plaza, 12th & Wyandotte, will help the Scouting program continue to assist underserved youth in the Kansas City Metropolitan area. Please consider making a donation and joining us for a great lunch.  This year's BBQ will be prepared by American Royal Grand Champion Plowboys BBQ.

Please watch more information regarding the 2017 event date, anticipated for late summer.  Individual tickets will be sold and will include a Pulled Pork Sandwich or Pulled Chicken Sandwich, Sides, Ice Cream, and a Beverage. Sponsorships are also available. For more information contact Niel Campbell by phone at 816-569-4949 or email
