We are in need of Unit Commissioners

Cubmasters do you have Den Chiefs helping in your dens?
|Scout Masters do you have Scouts looking for leadership positions?
We are losing our scouts after Webelos. They are not transitioning into Scouts. We hope that you will encourage your dens to use the Den Chief Program. This will help not only your Cubs but also the Scouter learn leadership skills. It’s a win- win. Check out our Den Chief Page on our District site for more information.
Den Chief duties (pick from): lead den in games, songs, skits; teach skills that he knows; help maintain order; coach the Cubs; stories on campouts; coach sporting events; basically be a “big” brother to the Cubs.
To find a scout troop that your Webelos can join after they graduate from Cubs go to beascout.org

Graham Allen, North Star
Scouting prepares young people for life, while teaching timeless values and having a ton of fun. I will always remember attending the 1997 National Boy Scout Jamboree at Fort A.P. Hill, Virginia. There I mixed with 30,000 other Scouts and volunteer leaders for an adventure of a lifetime that taught me Scouting skills, reinforced values, provided me an opportunity to overcame personal challenges, and grow as an individual.
What Scouting adventure are you involved with today or looking forward to in the future? Get involved today as a leader (stop wading in the Scouting stream – jump in and start swimming!), run the program as provided by the BSA, and participate in local Council and National events. If you do this, you and your Scouts will experience adventures today with memories that will last a lifetime.
