Posted on Oct 8 2019 - 9:09pm

At this year’s Thanksgiving campout, in addition to cardboard box turkey ovens and relaxing time with family and friends we will also be practicing the Scout attitude of “LEAVE NO TRACE.” We challenge ourselves this year to host a zero-waste event.

IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is committed first and foremost to keeping youth safe. Part of that commitment includes continually updating our youth protection policies to help ensure we are always on the forefront of youth safety.

As you know, one of the BSA’s many barriers to abuse is a mandatory criminal background check during the adult volunteer application process. The BSA will now also perform periodic rechecks of criminal backgrounds to support the continued safety of youth in our programs.

Please complete the process listed below at your earliest availability to help us continue to provide the safest environment possible for our Scouts and leaders. Please note that these steps must be completed before your 2020 annual registration can be processed.

The 2019 Shawnee Trails Camporee is back at Camp Naish. The theme of Zombie Apocalypse was chosen as a fun way to reinforce Scouting skills of Emergency Preparedness, First Aid, Pioneering and Camping. We will be able to emphasize the meaning of the Scout Motto, “Be Prepared”. Of course, the primary focus is to have fun! Sign up on the Troop website  and make sure your health form is tuned in.
