Latest News

Below is the latest news for our District.

Importance of Training

Every young person in the Scouting program needs and deserves a leader who understands the aims of the program and knows how to deliver it with enthusiasm and fun–in short, a trained leader. Because they understand their role, trained leaders have a positive influence on the live of youth. Research shows that Scouts with trained leaders enjoy the program more and stay in it longer. How well we influence the lives of these youth depends on their leaders’ understanding of the program and their responsibilities. 

All registered leaders MUST FIRST take Youth Protection Training before assuming a leadership role. It is strongly recommended that parents of all Scouts take this training as well–it cannot hurt to know what to expect from your son’s adult leaders and protects everyone involved in the unit by helping avoid any ambiguities arising from “not knowing” basic Youth Protection principles.

Popcorn Sales

Scouting units can earn enough money through the popcorn fundraising sale to fund their Scouting year! Would you like for your Scouts to attend summer camp, participate in Scouting events, and be recognized for their achievements all at no additional cost? Encourage Scouts to sell popcorn! Need new unit equipment? Sell popcorn!

Most unit fundraisers max out at 50% profit and raise funds needed to support the unit. Last year, more than 73% of gross retail popcorn sales were returned to support Scouting – benefiting youth, units, districts, and the council. You can be proud to sell Trail’s End popcorn because the products are delicious and the proceeds benefit everyone.

Be informed, subscribe to our district popcorn mailing list.

Unit Fundraisers

Each year, thousands of youth depend upon the money earned from unit fundraisers to attend summer camp, pay for annual registration or attend monthly activities.

Each unit who participates in a money raising project that is not endorsed by the council, must submit a Unit Money-Earning Application at least two weeks before the proposed fundraiser to the Del-Mi District Unit Fundraising Coordinator.
