District Dinner, and Volunteer Recognition Event - Date/location TBD
The annual District Banquet is our opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of volunteers who have shown amazing service to youth in their unit, and also some of the family members who have supported them.
The evening will culminate in the awarding of the District Award of Merit, the highest award a district can bestow upon an individual, to volunteer Scouters for their outstanding service to youth in our district.
Nominations for 2020 Awardees are now OPEN! Please use the forms below and Email Daniel Hemphill or Janell Neal by January 15th.
Day Camp is open to all Cub Scouts, including Kindergarten graduates, and will offer an unforgettable outdoor experience with activities ranging from shooting sports to science. Scouts shoot BB guns and bows and arrows; work on badges and adventure loops; cookout; sing songs; learn about nature; make crafts, and play games.
If you have not made plans to attend, you should! Going to camp is a wonderful part of the Cub Scouting experience, and it helps your pack earn Scouting's Journey to Excellence and Summertime Pack Awards. The Pack must provide leadership and adult supervision for their Cub Scouts who attend Day Camp, plus provide for transportation to and from the camps. It is recommended that packs have at least one registered adult leader attend camp for every five to six Cub Scouts. The minimum number allowed at any time is two, of which one of them must have completed Youth Protection Training. Everyone must complete parts A and B of the Annual Health and Medical Record.
Camp takes place rain or shine, is easy to sign up for, provides a lifetime of treasured memories and is very inexpensive
