Friends of Scouting
Each year we ask units to hold a Family Friends of Scouting presentation so we can spread the word to families about the great things we do in this program, and explain how it is funded. Most presentations are done in the January – April timeframe, during a court of honor or pack meeting. Please contact our Family FOS chair Kristina Divine
We’re excited to get back to the outdoors this summer and we would love for all of our Scouts, as well as their family and friends, to join us!
Register your Scout, Den, Patrol, or Unit for Camp, here.
Journey To Excellence
While many of you have already done this, every unit should turn in a JTE scorecard. Many of you have questions about the JTE (Journey To Excellence) form. The Scout Office can help you get the numbers you will need to complete this form and determine how you rank for Journey To Excellence. Please call at anytime during normal office hours with questions, or email Dauntee Reynolds and the information will be sent to you.

Visit Bryan on Scouting, a blog for BSA adult leaders, produced by Scouting Magazine. It includes tips, tricks, important information and best practices for units. Each post is a quick read and will benefit your unit.

Youth Protection Training
The National Council has released a new Youth Protection Training for all leaders that goes more in-depth on protecting the youth in our programs. As part of this new training rollout all new and currently registered leaders, regardless of current youth protection status, will need to take the new youth protection training.
The new youth protection training can be found at my.scouting.org.
Our District is currently supported by the following people; however, new volunteers are always welcome! Please contact our Professional Staff to find out how you can become involved at the District level.
