School Night for Scouting

As we prepare for the beginning of the school year and the beginning of a new Scouting year, please ensure that your pack has signed up for their School Night for Scouting date. Each Fall, the Red-Tailed Hawk District provides custom promotional materials and parent orientation materials to supplement your School Night. We also provide trained, engaging presenters to speak to new parents about joining Scouting. This year's dates are August 26, 27, 28 and September 2, 3. Please sign up with Jeff Marshall

School Night Orientation for Pack School Night Coordinators and Presenters will be held in conjunction with Roundtable on August 7 at Olathe Community of Christ Church 15520 South Ridgeview Rd Olathe, KS 66062. Please ensure that a representative from your Pack attends to receive this information.

Troop Open House

The Boy Scout troop open house allows a troop to swing open its doors and roll out the red carpet to welcome guests. It provides a forum to show off Scouting activities and the troop's accomplishments. It is an effective tool to reach youth who have never tried Scouting.
