New Resource for Den Leaders

There are two resources available to get those who just agreed to be a den leader off to a great start. The first is a video that walks den leaders through how to get started using the tools available to them. The second is a digital brochure titled “Welcome New Den Leader.” These brochures are specific to a Cub Scout rank and give new Den Leaders step-by-step instructions on how to get started.

  • Advancement - Note that COVID alone is no longer a sufficient reason for a time extension completion of Eagle Requirements. See Jan Feb Advancement NewsLetter and Eagle Time Extension Request
  • New 2021 Eagle Scout Workbook - Scout Forms
  • New Guide to Advancement - See Advancement News - March-April 2021
  • New 2022 Eagle Scout Application - Scout Forms
  • The new Citizenship in the Society merit badge is now available to be earned but it is a different kind of merit badge. Because of this, individuals wishing to be registered as merit badge counselors for Citizenship in the Society are being asked to watch a brief video at https://vimeo.com/613861523 and to complete the “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Scouting” training course at My.Scouting.Org
  • Eagle Scout Application - Life Scouts who have completed all their Eagle requirements must submit their Eagle Application, completed Eagle Project Workbook, and Statement of Ambitions and Life Purpose to the Council Registrar for verification and signature.  Please arrange these papers in order with a paperclip and put in a large envelope and take to the council service center and place in the Eagle Drop Box near the ground level entrance (retain a copy for your records).  She will review all paperwork using the checklist and scan them into the computer to be part of the official record.  The process will be smoother and quicker if it is pre-checked (See Application Process and  Check Sheet) by an adult leader to avoid discrepancies.  Then you will be notified to pick it up.  The Eagle Board of Review may not be scheduled until her verification is done and signed.
