We are still taking reservations and will offer full refunds should any camp or activity be cancelled. 

Unit Meetings/Activities

We strongly encourage that as many Scouting meetings and activities continue as possible using technology through at least May 31, 2020. We are working to provide Scouting Units and families with a variety of programing ideas and activities that are posted on our Facebook Page and council website.  Don’t miss the Nation Wide Camp-In scheduled for this Saturday, May 2nd at 10am Central Time!   

We ask all units in the Golden Spread Council to monitor and follow the social distancing guidelines provided by your state and local governments. 

Our professional staff is available to support you with your Scouting needs. Staff contact information is available in our Council Directory.
