About HIS Unit 447

Who we Are

Our unit was founded in June 2001 as a self-chartered Boy Scout unit for Homeschoolers. We started with only a Pack and a Troop. Over the years, as we saw the impact that scouting had on our children, we expanded to offer other programs, now including ad Scouts BSA Troop for Girls!

Several years ago we decided to create HIS Unit 447 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. This made us more self-reliant and provided an official structure from which to offer this program. In this way, we are fairly unique among scouting units.
