Inviting new boys and parents to join your pack is very important.   Come to our training at Roundtable next month to learn the best ways to reach out this fall.  We'll cover the things to do now before the summer, and overview what to do once school starts back.

Every Scout can attend camp this summer by selling cards!

Through Camp Cards, in our District, Scouts have completely paid their way to our district day camp, summer camps at Bert Adams and Woodruff and even bigger trips such as Philmont!  Don’t miss out on the no risk benefit of selling - fifty percent of every Camp Card sold goes directly to YOUR unit!
