Don’t miss this great opportunity!

For those of you who may not have heard, Packs and Troops in Lewis & Clark District have an opportunity to participate in a quick and easy fundraising opportunity.

Whether your unit didn’t do as well with popcorn sales as you would’ve liked, or you’re looking to raise just a little bit more money for activities, CAMP CARDS ARE HERE!

For every $10 card sold, $5 goes back to your unit!  That’s 50% that goes back to your Scouts.  Some units have been known to sell out of their cards after a few hours of selling in front of Albertsons!

Leader Specific Training on February 6!

Every Youth Deserves a Trained Leader! Trained leaders can deliver a Scouting program that is fun, well organized and will instill the values of the Scout Oath and Law for the rest of a boy’s life.

We will be offering Leader Specific training at the Salvation Army (1000 17th Ave S) on Saturday, February 6, starting at 10am. The class will go until 2:30pm. Lunch and snack items will be available for purchase at the Salvation Army snack bar.

The final training necessary for leaders to be considered trained is Basic Outdoor Leader Training.  The District will be offering that training at the Trail to First Class campout at Log Gulch Campground on April 17.  A future post will discuss that training, but mark your calendar!
