As of December 1st, all current MBC’s are on the list and ready to go.
Please remember this list is intended for the private use of Troops, Units, and MBC’s and should not to be sent to parents or scouts. Scouts are required to contact their Unit to request a MBC. This process is used as a check and balance for all scouts and allows Units the chance to check in with scouts and have an open communication about a scout’s advancement.
Information on the MBC list is updated on a weekly basis. Saving a copy to your computer may mean you have outdated information. Please feel free to visit the online list at any time.
We also have a new email address SammTrailsMBClist@outlook.com.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please contact

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.

“There are strange things done in the midnight sun, by the men who moil for gold, the Arctic trails have their secret tales that would make your blood run cold”……these words were penned by the fabled poet and writer, Robert Service, as he watched the great Klondike Gold rush going on around him. It was an amazing time in our country with men and women pushing themselves to unbelievable limits in the hopes of striking it rich!
And annually around the country, the BSA puts on its own version of the Klondike Challenge to put its members to the test! Webelos, Boy Scouts, Venturers – time to start dusting off your sled or build a new one because Klondike will soon be upon us. Ensign Ranch will once again host our great Klondike.

Cub Scout leaders keep bringing up advancement challenges in the new Adventure Program, mainly that it is too rigid. Well, national has been listening! Read more about it in Bryan on Scouting then go look at all the changes, http://www.scouting.org/filestore/cubscouts/pdf/CubScout_Advancement_Modifications.pdf
“I asked a Scoutmaster once, in a great city, how he managed his Saturday hikes, whether in the park or in the country? He did not have them at all. Why not? Because his boys did not care about them. They preferred to come into the meeting room on Saturday afternoons! Of course, they preferred it, poor little beggars; they were accustomed to being indoors. But that is what we are out to prevent in the Scouts - our object is to wean them from indoors and to make the outdoors attractive to them.” - BP
