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 a Venture Crew, Frontier Girls, and Scouts BSA Troop for Girls to serve all homeschoolers in the greater Charlotte area. With something for everyone, we are a family scouting unit--a place where your whole family can scout together.

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.
