Scouter of the Month

We are happy to announce that our district recognition team has elected to announce a "scouter of the month!" The scouter of the month is a local leader that has gone above and beyond to help their unit or district achieve better, stronger scouting. This month's scouter of the month is....  Nicholas Kane!

Nicholas is a Webelos Den Leader in Pack 274, chartered by Horace Lutheran Church in Horace, ND. Nicholas has been a den leader for the past 5 years, and has consistently done a great job with his den, always organized and is always working on getting parents involved with den and pack activities. Nicholas also is one of Pack 274's most creative leaders, bringing new ideas to the table at committee meetings and leader meetings. Additionally, Nicholas takes on extra duties in the pack as they come up – creating a culture of volunteerism. Thank you for your servant leadership and commitment to scouting! - Nominated by Shawn Zander


Join us on the 1st Thursday of each month at the Center for Scouting for our monthly training sessions! Learn best practices tips on the trade of being a scouting leader! Connect with other leaders from different units and share ideas the lead to better, stronger scouting! Roundtables begin at 7 pm with announcements, and then break shortly after for specific cub scout and boy scout leader sessions.

Eagle Boards of Review

If your scout is looking to set up their Eagle Scout Board of Reviews or has questions about the Eagle Scout process, please send an email message.

District Dinner

The best part of the year - recognizing adult leaders for their incredible work in developing character in scouts! Add February 23rd on your calendar for the district recognition dinner. There is absolutely no way scouting could function without the quality leaders serving each pack and troop. This is the district’s time to thank you for all you do in addition to announcing and awarding scouter of the year awards.

Do a Good Turn Daily

A Scout doing their “Good Turn” is what helped bring the Scouting Movement from England to America. Scouts – never underestimate the power of your good deeds! If we’re not serving our communities, why are we scouts? Need some ideas? Ask your chartered organization what they need help with (also a great way to build relationships), go to your school and do a clean up there, maybe there is an area where you community needs to some – volunteer your Pack or Troop to pitch in! Make sure you are also logging in each Community Service Project you are doing! Need help or direction, contact Kevin or Brett at (701) 293-5011.

Putting the "Outing" in Scouting!

Why are youth joining scouts?! For adventure! Make sure your pack or troop is scheduling regular outings! What could that be?! For Boy Scouts, visit a weekend event at Camp Wilderness this winter. For troops, ask your Senior Patrol Leader to investigate National High Adventure Bases. Don’t forget that great outings go a long way in keeping our scouts interested in scouting. If your pack or troop is having retention issues, your unit is likely not scheduling enough outings. Further, our volunteer district team does an incredible job of creating opportunities for you to bridge the gap. Sign up for day camps, camporees, and Scout night with the Fargo Force! 

Spring Camporee

Mark April 26-28 on your calendar for our annual Spring Camporee! As we are in the final stages of planning, tune in to future announcements via email and roundtable for our program! Is your troop having issues bringing younger scouts in? Call up a nearby pack and invite the Webelos den to join you for the outing. The best part of the Spring Camporee: all you need to do is show up!
