Scouting families and prospective Scouting families have asked for it, and now it is here! Beginning this fall, the traditional paper registration method will not be the only way to join Scouting.

In an effort to assist our units with this new registration tool, we will be sending an email each Thursday which will focus on an individual aspect of the tool. These...

  “Summertime, and the livin' is easy,” so go the words of a popular song. Too often our Cub Scout leaders decide to take it easy too, but summertime is a great time for advancement to take place. A year-round program provides opportunities and variety for Cub Scouts. The BSA has awards for packs, dens, and individual Cub Scouts that can help to motivate Scouts and families to participate and keep summertime boredom from settling in. A pack can earn the National Summertime Pack Award by doing three pack activities when school is out for the summer—one activity each in June, July, and August...

Circle Ten Council and NeTseO Trails Council have merged in order to strengthen Scouting across Northeast Texas and Southeast Oklahoma. Scouts in both councils wear the same uniform, follow the same advancement program, and subscribe to the same Oath and Law. Day-to-day operations in a unit will not be affected. A merged council creates more robust programs and allows more youth to benefit from Scouting’s life-changing programs.

  Many Louisiana Scout families have been impacted and displaced by flooding. Both, the Evangeline Area Council (Lafayette) and Istrouma Area Council (Baton Rouge) are operating with limited communication and staff. This fund has been set up to make it easy for those wanting to help. Your support will provide new uniforms and handbooks to Scouts and leaders who are devastated by the floods and help both councils again become fully operational. Thank you in advance for your continued prayers and support.

A Dallas Police Department Explorer Post visited Philmont Scout Ranch this summer, proving Philmont isn't just for Boy Scouts. Below is an article that was written for Philmont's newspaper. Trustworthy, Loyal and Helpful: these are just a few of the qualities all Scouts strive to possess. Crew 623 Q12 came to Philmont in search of a deeper understanding of those traits.  On June 23, 2016, a crew of Law Enforcement Explorers passed through the Welcome Center threshold and into a land of High Adventure. The crew was filled with ambitious teens seeking a career in Law Enforcement and/ or...
