Wolves ad Venture into High Seas!

Ahoy mateys and welcome to the High Seas! At the Pirate Ship Wolves can grab their fishing poles and bathing suits because you are sailing into an adventure with your captain and first mate. You will battle each other from ship to ship in a sponge war, use a map and compass to “Find your Way” to the missing treasure, and enjoy the pirate-themed fun all session long.
What's Popping is Galactic!

Things are popping regarding the council product sale fundraiser. You told us what needed to change....and we not only listened....we clearly heard you and made some changes! New opportunities for units to raise funds, new incentives, and if that wasn't enough we've also gone NUTS!
Adventure is Calling You!

Not registered for camp yet? Have no fear - Cub Scout Adventure Camp is reserving a spot just for you! At camp, relax and have fun with your Cub while we take care of the rest. Our online reservation system is quick and easy.   Still have questions? We are happy to answer them. Contact Judy Williams, Program Director at   judyw034@yahoo.com    See you at Camp!
Merit Badge Corner

50-Miler? Mile Swim? These are a couple of the special opportunities by which Scouts can be recognized for their achievements above and beyond the normal rank advancement. There are many many more...is your Scout ready for the challenge.
Provisional Camping

A Provisional Scout is either a male or female Scout who wants to attend summer camp on their own. Not only will you have an opportunity to earn more merit badges, but you get to meet new Scouts and leaders. To register, just have a Scout leader or parent register at your favorite camp’s summer camp registration page listed here:.
Youth Protection Course

If, prior to March 1, 2019, you were taking the original Feb. 1, 2018 course on-line and haven't received credit for all three parts and the quiz, you will need to ‘start over’ and take the March 1, 2019 course. This will only effect a very small number of leaders. Of course, we highly recommend everyone to take the updated modules to be completely up to date on what is new in youth protection, but it will only be required once a leader hits the 2 year point. For questions or comments contact Chuck Arnold at 585-469-1462 or scouter.chuckles@gmail.com
