Greetings from the District Training Committee!
Every Leader needs to take Youth Protection Every Year in the Montana Council. No exceptions.
While we need to be 100% vigilant on Youth Protection, we are trying to make YPT an easy and achievable goal for every unit, commissioner, merit badge counselor and leader in our District.
We will be holding Youth Protection Training as our District Roundtable program on October 11 at the LDS Stake Center, 1015 15th Ave S at 6:30 pm. We ask every adult in every unit to attend. We promise to lead an engaging discussion and to be very respectful of your time!
Yours In Scouting,
Aaron Weissman, email@example.com, 406-868-8982
A note from the camping committee:
The program for the Fall Camporee includes instructions to bring the 10 Essentials PLUS 5. In your current Scout Book, the 10 Essentials are on pages 238-239. (If you have an older book, you probably have been a Scout long enough to know your 10 Essentials…)
But PLUS FIVE? What are those? Never fear; they could include any five of:
- Duct/Duck Tape
- Survival Kit
- Scout Book
- Insect Repellant
- Toilet Paper
So know you know. Be prepared.
GPS…..46.97916667 Longitude 110.5186111 Latitude
From Great falls go east on 89/200 to near the town of Stanford ( about 1 mile before Stanford) there will be a BSA sign at the turn…..about 60 miles
Turn right at that point in the direction to Dry Wolf campground Forest Service access.
Go 4.3 miles to the Y intersection and bear right ( there will be a BSA sign there too) Then travel another 15.7 miles to the Campground
When in the campground continue thru it and cross the bridge to registration where you will be given camp assignments.
Remember there is no parking on the sides of the road. If you have extra vehicles they will need to park in the day use area ( no exceptions)
Camp spots on a first come first serve basis,and I need to know how many you are bringing so I can assign the spots so you will be together
Please scoutmasters post me or text me your anticipated headcount of adults and kids for Camporee so I know how much food to bring for cracker barrel. Also troop number….
There will be a drawing for the boys at camp of a Garmin Vista GPS
Details at Cracker Barrel
1pm to 7pm……arrival and check in
6pm to 8:30 pm……Travelers feast……FREE

Here is a follow up on Fall Camporee.
Note that the Catapult or Trebuchet can be built of any modern materials if you wish. This is engineering not pioneering.
All scouts will be required to carry a day pack with 10 essentials plus six. A Scout will be chosen from EACH Patrol during the day to produce these items.
Each patrol will need to bring a SKIT IN A BOX to be traded to another Patrol. The box will have exactly 5 items of their choosing. Please tape and seal the box with your name and Patrol so it can be returned to you
We are giving away a Garmin Vista to a lucky Scout at Camporee.
Fall Fellowship is only one month away, Sept 23-25! With a theme like Arrowmen of the Round Table, who wouldn’t want to be a part of this medieval event?
Come battle your fellow Arrowmen in a Jousting Tournament. Or try your luck at the William Tell Style Archery Shoot! Learn how to make chain mail!
Fun, food, fellowship and much more! Registration is available on the Lodge website!
