Our Scouting Journey to Excellence

Journey to Excellence (JTE) is Scouting’s way to measuring the quality of our program at each of our Packs, Troops, Crews and Teams.  A unit with a high JTE score is a unit that is recruiting youth, advancing them in the program and delivering a great Scouting program.

Your unit’s JTE score tells the parents in your unit about how the great program that they will experience for their son if they join or continue to participate in your unit.  Completing this exercise is extremely worthwhile.  Your JTE score is due with your unit recharter.  If that proves to be impossible, please turn it in to District Executive Dustin Shoemake or District Commissioner Rex Jewett by December 1.

You can download your scoresheets here:

District Scout Show!

monkey_bridgeWhat:  The Lewis and Clark District Scout Show!

When:  September 9-10, 2016. Show begins 9am on 9/10

Where:  ExpoPark (the Fairgrounds)

Who:   All of the Packs, Troops and Crews in the Lewis and Clark District!

Troops and Packs are all invited to camp overnight at the Expo Park for our annual Scout show.  For those needing an extra night of camping for rank advancement, camping merit badge, etc. this is a great opportunity to do so.  No open fires will be allowed, but we will have a lot of fun anyways.

Scout Show Event chair Tami Lukas would like all of the units to do something individual to their unit so that the public can get an idea of what is offered.  The Order of the Arrow will be doing concessions.

On Friday night Troops and Packs will be helping to build a monkey bridge.

For any questions please contact Tami Lukas, event chair at 406-564-5344.

Scouts and Swimming!

Swimming, Scout and Summer.  The three just go together, kind of like peanut butter and jelly, rice and beans or peas and carrots.  So, let’s go swimming!

Troop 26 has reserved the Water Tower neighborhood pool for the evening of Monday, June 27 from 6-8pm.  As more kids = more fun, we would like to invite other Troops and Packs in town to join us (and, of course, help pay for our pool rental).

Please call Scoutmaster Aaron Weissman, 868-8982, for more information.
