This annual training is for any currently registered Scoutmaster or Assistant Scoutmaster in Scouts BSA. Webelos Den Leaders who will be moving up to a Troop in the next year may also register. This training is REQUIRED for all Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmaster to be considered fully trained in his or her position.
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!
Registration ends at midnight, Febraury 25!
The annual Order of the Arrow Lock-In is a fun activity for all Scouts BSA and Crew Members (NO Cub Scouts)!. Begin at about 8pm at the Activity Center at WT and start out by swimming in the pool with only other OA members (Private party!) until around 10pm and then the real fun begins! Check out the attached flyer for all the details.
Registration is only online and we MUST have at least 60 OA members to register to make this event happy. Registration Extended until Feb 27 at 11:55pm
All registrants must fill out the WTAMU Climbing Tower Waiver prior to attending. Please fill it out and bring it with you to the Lock-In.
If your Unit has signed up for Camp Cards this year, we ask that you register to attend the District Camp Card Kickoff event. You will here about proven selling techniques, key dates, and receive your Camp Cards!
By registering, we know that your unit will be represented and even more importantly, where you will want to pick up your cards. Many units do not go to their home District Kickoff for a variety of reasons so we offer you a choice!
We will not offer units the option to pick up their cards outside of a Kickoff as you will miss the excitement that happens and it ties up our staff to do individual briefings. That said, it doesn’t have to be the actual Unit Camp Card Coordinator who attends as long as someone is responsible to bring back the cards and the very important information to the unit.
Help us collect food for the High Plains Food Bank in support of those with food insecurities in our community!
Below, you can find information about this great program and share it with your family and your unit.
If your unit has not signed up to collect from a neighborhood and still like to participate, call the Golden Eagle District Executive, Michael Lopez, at 806.358.6500 for neighborhood availability and more information!
April 13 is the last day Camp Cards may be sold and the money collected from your sales is due by 5:00pm on the same day. Your money and unsold camp cards may be turned in at the Scout Service Center, which will be open from 8:30am-12:30pm, or during the Cub Scout Jamboree Extravaganza at Camp Don Harrington!
Below are important documents needed to complete the process of turning in your unsold cards and money!
If you any questions regarding Camp Cards and the return process, please contact Chase Roach at 806.358.6500
Due to anticipated poor weather conditions for Saturday, April 13, we are rescheduling this event to Saturday April 27.

Please note that this is not a family camp, and only Cub Scouts and their guardians or Cub Scout leaders may attend. The family camp will be held in June this year!
Group registration is STRONGLY ENCOURAGED for this event. Registering as a group helps keep your unit organized and drastically reduces wait time at check-in on the day of the event! A Group Registration Form is attached below for your convenience. Simply print the form, fill it out, and return it to your Den Leader or Cubmaster so that he or she may register everyone at once!
Keep watch for the Leader’s Guide which will be released soon!
This annual event is for the whole family- mom, dad, sister, brother, grandparents, etc! We’ve had over 200 Scouts and guests attend this experience each year so why don’t you join. Philmont is breathtaking so you don’t want to miss out. Two person tents are provided along with Saturday Breakfast and Dinner (Lunch is on your own) and Sunday breakfast. Fun activities are available for you to participate or if you don’t want to do anything other than sit around or hike on your own, that’s ok with us!
