Action Needed

SAVE THE DATE - Rendezvous 2016: April 8-10

MARK YOUR CALENDARS NOW: The 2016 Rendezvous will be back at Camp Wisdom, scheduled for April 8th - 10th!

CampMaster registration and more details about Rendezvous will be announced in February, but you can expect an event similar to last year's fun: an action-packed day full of various activities exciting to Venturers and Sea Scouts!

This Saturday February 13 is pick up day! Pick up the donations from the homes and deliver to the two Tom Thumb Collection Centers. Campbell and Coit (northeast corner) and also Skillman and Audelia (north of Royal Lane). Please provide the following when dropping off: Unit #, # of Youth that participated, # of Adults that participated, # of service hours, and # of items collected.

Please sign up today for camp cards through CampMaster. This is a Risk Free Unit Sales project where all Scouts can earn their way to Camp, Philmont, other activities or simply support unit program or supply needs. Each Camp Card will sell for only $5.00 to the general public and will have multiple food, service and entertainment discounts for the customer to use throughout the year.

Scouting depends on volunteers and contributions to make the program run. Please take a moment to schedule a time for a presenter to come to your Court of Honor or Blue and Gold Banquet and make a short presentation about Friends of Scouting. It will only take a about 15 minutes. It 's essential that our local Circle Ten Council have adequate funds to implement this great program with the necessary camps, professional staff and service centers. Without these assets the program could not function. If you have questions contact: Jesus Vazquez Jesus.Vazquez@scouting.org Make your reservation here and someone will contact you to confirm.
It's easy and helps demonstrate how our program and its members provide many selfless hours of volunteer service supporting and improving our local communities. Keep reading
