Upcoming Activities in 2017
What an exciting race! Almost 70 Cub Scouts put their pinewood cars to the test with three coming out as best in the District for 2017. A huge thank you to Will England for coordinating the event and serving as emcee, and to Nathan Roney for providing an awesome concessions stand. We'll be back for another exciting race in 2018!
A very special thank you to Dawn Schnake for coordinating another fun Webelos Woods! Webelos and Bears had a great time with badminton, Scout skills, track & field, aware & care, and a visit from Pet Partners. Thanks to everyone who helped make this awesome weekend at Camp Naish a success!
District Adult Recognition Dinner
The District Adult Recognition Dinner is an evening to recognize the dedicated volunteers of the district, held every February. A big thank you to our volunteer chairs, Ben and Lisa Grismley, and their committee for putting on a wonderful evening. Nomination forms go out at October Roundtable, and are due back at January roundtable each year.
Merit Badge Forum
The 2017 Merit Badge Forum featured our first Shawnee Trails forum with over 550 scouts in attendance in February and March! Thank you to the Shawnee Mission school district for offering their middle school and to Marshall Hollingsworth for chairing this event!
Webelos on Wheels
Webelos on Wheels was another great event with Webelos taking over the UMKC campus! Thank you to Dave Wieliczka and the UMKC Physics Department for their support of this great event for our Webelos.
Over 420 Boy Scouts, Venturers, and Webelos put their Super Scout skills to the test with activities that included obstacles, knot tying, branding, fire building, campsite cooking, rocket launching, Ham radio, hand-cranked apple cider, tent stake making, rope bridge, mini first aid kits, rope making, and more! Thanks to the 17 Troops that came out and put on such fun activities!
An extra special thanks to this year's Camporee Chair, Phil Park! His tireless hours and creativity led to a successful, first Shawnee Trails Camporee.
Next year we will take a break from District Camporee to focus on SCOUTING 500! The Scouting 500 returns to Kansas Speedway August 25-27, 2017. Experience the best of Kansas City Scouting and go full throttle with more than 100 activities over 3 days of high octane excitement!
