Cub Scout Leader Adventure Academy- Deadline to register is October 26 @ Camp Don Harrington
Nov 2 @ 6:00 pm – Nov 3 @ 11:30 am

Join us for this awesome training for Cub Scout Leaders (and parents if interested). You will receive training from experts who are or were, in your position and they will provide outstanding instruction and advice on how to have a great program. This is very interactive- not sitting in a classroom!

The training includes Pack Committee, Den Leader, Cubmaster, and BALOO — Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (this is required by at least one leader of a Pack who is going on an overnight trip with a Cub Scout Pack) and Assistants. Once you attend the class, you will receive credit for ALL of the positions so when you move around the Pack, you will be trained PLUS this allows you to understand what each position is supposed to be doing for the Pack!

You must attend the entire class and stay overnight. There is NO EXCEPTIONS as this course is all intertwined and there is no one time devoted to a specific training.

IMPORTANT NOTE: You will be required to complete the online BALOO Prerequisite training and Hazardous Weather online Training BEFORE class and bring proof of completion to the class. Without that, credit will not be given for any class until those two classes are complete. They can only be done online per the BSA. If you previously completed Hazardous Weather Training, this does not pertain to you and we will be able to check this for you. You can go online at any time prior to class and we highly encourage you to get it done ASAP!

What is Scouting

The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation’s largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations, providing programs for young people that build character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship and develops personal fitness. For more than 100 years, Boy Scouts of America has helped build future leaders by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun.

Vision and Mission Statement
Mission Statement

The mission of the Golden Spread Council is to serve today’s youth and aid them in their endeavors to be prepared to face the challenges and opportunities of life, by instilling values through Scouting that will last for a lifetime. Our purpose is to provide strong, values-based programs that strengthen character, develop good citizenship, and enhance both mental and physical fitness. Our objective is to accomplish the mission of the BSA and provide Scouting values to the maximum number of youth in every community we serve.

Vision Statement

The vision of the Golden Spread Council is to be the foremost youth program of character development and values-based leadership training in the Panhandles of Texas and Oklahoma.
The Golden Spread Council will continue in the future to:

  • Deliver values-based programs of the highest quality to the greatest number of youth in our service area
  • Emphasize the aims of Scouting: building character, participating citizenship, and the development of physical, mental and emotional fitness
  • Offer our young people challenging fun and adventure that helps them reach their potential
  • Positively impact our local communities by recruiting and equipping deeply involved charter organizations and adult leaders who build values, skills, and leadership in our youth
  • Provide superior and safe facilities where our programs can be delivered consistent with the methods of Scouting
  • Ensure the financial development of the council that will best carry out our mission and vision and to provide for the future.

Youth Protection Training

The Boy Scouts of America places the greatest importance on creating the most secure environment possible for our youth members. To maintain such an environment, the BSA developed numerous procedural and leadership selection policies and provides parents and leaders with resources for the Cub Scout, Boy Scout, and Venturing programs.

The Boy Scouts of America takes great pride in the quality of our adult leadership. Being a leader in the BSA is a privilege, not a right. The quality of the program and the safety of our youth members call for high-quality adult leaders.

We work closely with our chartered organizations to help recruit the best possible leaders for their units.

Required Training
Youth Protection Training is required for all BSA registered volunteers. Youth Protection Training must be taken every two years. If a volunteer’s Youth Protection Training record is not current at the time of recharter, the volunteer will not be reregistered.
