Come join us for a night of information and discussion on Scouts with special needs and how as leaders and parents we can help. Leah Meigs will be sharing information from the Guide to Advancement. We are in this together!
When the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve, it won’t just mean the end of 2018.
It’ll also mean the end of any partial progress made toward position-specific training for Cub Scout leaders and Boy Scout leaders. (These courses, and many more, are found at the BSA Learn Center on My.Scouting.org.)
The courses are being updated, and the new versions will launch on Jan. 2, 2019. The new courses will feature closed captioning, updated content and a mobile-friendly format. Also cool: They’ll take less time to complete compared to the previous learning plan.
Any partial progress you’ve made toward your current training plan won’t carry over to the new one. That means you’ll want to complete any in-progress training by year’s end.
Be certain to add the 2019 District Camporee to your Troop's calendar!

The time you spent this past summer at Cub Day Camp, hiking trails, herding Scouts to the dining hall, and singing campfire songs helped build your Scouts’ sense of adventure, teamwork, and ability to overcome challenges.
Chances are you helped those Scouts create a handful of memories they will keep for the rest of their lives. That same volunteer time, which has already had a profound effect on the youth around you, could have a huge impact financially for Scouting.
Please take the time today to log in your BSA Volunteer Hours.
This process provides essential funding for the same camps and activities your Scouts enjoyed this summer here in Chief Seattle Council. And, for every 50 hours you volunteer, your pack or troop will receive 100 Scout Bucks that can be used for council and district activities.
