Scout Tour Day at Milepost 31
Join us on May 16th at Milepost 31, the Alaskan Way Viaduct Replacement Program’s information center, for an exclusive Scout Tour Day! Milepost 31 will open early to Scouts an opportunity to explore the ins and outs of Bertha, the world’s largest tunnel boring machine. Scouts will get an insiders perspective on how tunneling works with a guided behind-the-scenes construction tour near the SR 99 work site. This tour, combined with the center’s videos and interactive exhibits make this a not-to-be-missed experience that showcases history in the making. To register, please email merkelm@wsdot.wa.gov with “Scout Tour Day” in the subject line and indicate the number and ages of all those in your party. Registration for these events will be first-come-first-served.

BSA's New Technology & Tools PDF Print E-mail

Are you using all of the BSA’s new technology tools?

In the last year, the BSA has released new tools to help volunteers reach out to new families and manage all of their Scouting information more easily.  Make sure that you have checked these out and are using them to help your pack, troop, or crew be the best it can be!

BeAScout

  • People interested in joining Scouting can visit this website and use a Google map to locate their nearest pack, troop, or crew.  They can then learn more about the unit, send the unit a message, and even complete youth and adult applications!
  • The first step is to make sure that your unit’s map pin is set up and has current contact information.  Then activate your online applications and approve them as the come in.  Both tasks are accessible by the unit “Key Three”: the unit leader (Cubmaster/Scoutmaster/ Crew Advisor), Chartered Organization Representative, and Committee Chair.
  • Need help with BeAScout?
  1. All the info is here.
  2. PowerPoint on how to set up your map pin is here.
  3. Video on how to activate and approve online applications is here.
