The 2019 Camp Card Fundraising Program is one of two fundraisers the Council offers to Scout Units. This program has been extremely effective in getting funds your unit and scouts need to participate in many of the activities we offer and to supplement funds needed to purchase items such as Tents, Cookware, Chuck Boxes, Pinewood Derby Car Race Tracks, Uniforms needs etc.
Cards sell for just $5.00 each and the Unit keeps $2.50 for a 50 percent commission. The only forms required to be completed are the Top Salesman Form and the top Council Cub Scout and Scouts BSA seller receives a $400.00 Visa Gift Card!
This is a Unit level event however if your unit decides not to participate and your family does, please call the office to discuss the options as we want to offer everyone the opportunity to earn their way to Camp and other fun activities we offer during the year.
There is no cost upfront as your unit orders the amount of cards they want, they attend a Kickoff in early March to get briefed on selling techniques and to pick up the cards, they Scouts go out and sell, and the money ($2.50 per card) is sent to the Scout Service Center in late April. All the exact dates are in the Leader’s Guide- please read through it for lots of other cool facts!
Please visit the Support Scouting Tab on the Council Website to see more details about the Camp Card Program along with several resources to help your sale.

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.
This event is one of the highlights of a Cub Scout’s Scouting Career! Race your handmade car against other Scouts in the Lone Wolf District. Check out the flyer for all the details.
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)!.

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.
