General - 2017 Long-term Camp Report Posted Jun. 15, 2017
Each October, the council reports to the National Office the number of units and youth who attended any long-term camp for more than 72 hours. In the past this was done with the help of Tour and Activity Plans, but now they are obsolete. We would like to request that every unit from our council who attends any out of council long-term camp or plans a long-term independent camp on their own, send us the information. We need to know the unit number, where you went, how many scouts attended, how many scout leaders attended, how many non-scout leaders attended, and how many siblings attended. This report can be sent to me. Thank you!

General - Applications & Membership Posted Jun. 15, 2017
New members are equally important to the growth of healthy units as they are to our council. Please remember to send all new applications in right away so our new members can be registered with the BSA and added to your rosters. Save time and money on postage, just scan and email them to me! This will help with many of the scouting tools available to you today, like Internet Advancement/ScoutNet and ScoutBook, and it especially helps with Rechartering at the end of the year! If you ever need a supply of applications, just send me a note and I'll get them sent out to you right away. Thank you!
