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.
The Pinewood Derby Race is now set! This fun event will be held at the St Thomas the Apostle Church located on Coulter St. in Amarillo on Feb 23. To register, complete the details on the attached Flyer and return to the Scout Service Center no later than February 21.
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 ends on Feb 22 at Noon!
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.
This fun event will be held on May 18th at the Southeast Park located in Canyon, TX. Come out and catch the “BIG”one!
Complete the details on the attached flyer and return to the Scout Service Center no later than May 16th to join on all the fun!!!
