As the leaves change and colder weather moves in we have plenty of activities for Scouts of all ages to participate in this fall. Cub Scouts will love camping out at Bert Adams Scout Camp during  Spooky-Ree . We are also offering over 60+ merit badges for Scouts BSA to earn at  Merit Badge University on November 16th.
Spooky-Ree Family Camping Weekends
Spooky-Ree is a fall themed weekend filled with a fall festival, nature show, pumpkin decorating, archery, BBs, s'mores and a campfire. The highlight of the weekend is the Trick-or-Treating Trail for all Scouts and a spooky haunted trail for the older Scouts and adults.

We have two more Spooky-Ree weekends for you to choose from:
  • October 12-14
  • October 19-21 - Almost Full!

Stay for the weekend or come out just for the fun on Saturday at Bert Adams Scout Camp. This is one of the best opportunities to get your Cub Scouts camping right away and have fun!

Online Charter Renewal is Now Open!
The online Charter Renewal system is open and ready for you to begin the process.

Keys to Success:
  • Start early: it can sometimes take longer than you might expect.
  • Ensure your roster is up to date before you “load roster” in the online system. We have recruited almost 8,000 new Scouts in the last two months, make sure they are registered before you proceed.
  • Every adult will be required to complete a new Background Check Disclosure form. These will be emailed directly to all registered adult leaders.
  • Have questions? Our Commissioner and Field Service team is ready to help you!

Reminder : while leaders can work on their rosters in the online system beginning now, the new registration fee will be announced in late October. After that units will be able to make online payments and complete their Charter Renewal.
