Youth Protection Training on October 11

Unknown.jpegGreetings 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,, 406-868-8982



10 Essentials PLUS FIVE?? What is that about?

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
  • Rope/Cord
  • Survival Kit
  • Scout Book
  • Insect Repellant
  • Toilet Paper

So know you know.  Be prepared.

Directions to Camporee

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
