Scouts BSA Coming in February 2019
In preparation for the start of the Scouts BSA program and opportunities for girls to participate, materials are now available to explain how troops can begin being organized.
We will also be offering a series of webinars to explain the program and help new troops begin the program planning process.
Visit the Family Scouting page for more information and the Scouts BSA toolkit that includes:
Let us know you are interested in Scouts BSA for girls
If you have a daughter that would be interested in participating in Scouts BSA or would like to help organize a troop in your area, let us know. Complete this short survey to let us know you are interested in Scouts BSA.
Become a Certified Youth Protection Trainer
To become a certified YPT trainer, view this Go to Meeting presentation and then contact Darin Steindl with your name and mailing address - you will be sent the training materials so that you can conduct face to face training sessions for other leaders.
Cub Scout Day Camp
To help communicate Day Camp information and coordinate the registration of youth, we are asking for each pack to have a Pack Day Camp Coordinator. The coordinators will be invited to participate in a webinar in January and closer to the date of the district camp. Please let us know who your pack's coordinator is by completing the Pack Day Camp Coordinator form.
Program Planning-Calendar Book
Every April, the council has distributed a Program Planning booklet that also contained the district and council calendar of events. We would like to know if you would like to continue to receive this in a printed format, or if the electronic format available online is all you need.
Share your thoughts by completing this short survey.
Family Friends of Scouting Scheduling
During the first few months of each year (usually Jan/Feb/Mar), we ask packs and troops to allow a Family Friends of Scouting presentation to be scheduled during the Blue and Gold Banquet, Court of Honor or other pack/troop meeting. The district will have a presenter attend and talk to the parents for about 8-10 minutes about how the council supports the local pack. Parents are then given the opportunity to make a financial pledge to the Friends of Scouting campaign. This is not a high-pressure sales pitch. Schedule a presentation for your pack or troop.

Webelos can move from the Cub Scouting program to the Scouts BSA when they meet these joining requirements:
