Cub Scout Day Camp 

Cub Scout Day Camp or Twilight Camp is an accredited, organized, one- to five-day program for Cub Scouts. Using trained leadership at an approved site, these camps are held during daylight or early evening hours, but not overnight.

It is a great opportunity for your son or daughter to enjoy several fun-filled days with his fellow Scouts at one of our nearby Cub Scout camps and/or local parks or churches. Day Camp is held during the morning and through the early afternoon. Twilight Camp is held in the early evening hours.

Our Scouts will enjoy tried and true camp favorites such as BBs, Archery, Cooking, Sports, STEM, leadership, Scout Skills, hiking, and more.

Peer to Peer Recruiting

Give your scouts the opportunity to share Scouting with their friends!  This is also an easy way to fill in those smaller dens or patrols.  It’s as easy as 1.2.3!

  1. Pick a date for your new prospects to come and visit your pack or troop.  Plan a fun activity for the youth and for someone to talk to the parents.
  2. Print out the cards in the links below on card stock and give them to your scouts and parents to each invite 4 friends to Scouting.
    A few personal invitations to good friends will bring in more families than simply giving them to everyone in their class.
  3. Have a great meeting and sign up new Scouts!

Postcard Files
Print on card stock and cut in quarter pages.

Scouting:  A Volunteer with a Purpose – Unit Commissioner

Make an IMPACT statement by working with a unit (Unit = Pack, Troop or Crew) on being the behind the scene leadership on building youth with Character.

Bring your life experiences, education, and perspective, and in return, you will have an opportunity to combine those skills and experiences in a career that values and respects others.  Since 1910, the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has helped change lives and build future leaders of this country by combining educational and outdoor adventure activities with lifelong value and fun.  While the BSA has a major focus on the development of young men, the BSA also has co-educational programs, such as Venturing, available to both young men and young women.

  • Bring your experiences to our district as a Unit Commissioner. The Commissioners mission is to keep Units operating at maximum efficiency so they can deliver a quality program to a growing membership. The Commissioners role is to develop strength within the Unit by providing program resources, and acting as the liaison between the Unit and the District and Council. This helps Units provide the best possible Scouting program, which ultimately helps assure that individual Scouts have the best opportunity to achieve their best.
  • CEO, CFO, Parent, Retired Professional, Baker, Indian Chief, Eagle Scouts, Worker-Bee alike – all of you can be a commissioner.

District Support

District Roundtables

Boy Scout Roundtable is a form of commissioner service and supplemental training for volunteers at the unit level. The objectives of Roundtables are to provide leaders with program ideas, information on policy and events, and training opportunities.

 District Committee Meetings

The entire district committee, chaired by the district chair, meets on a regularly scheduled date, usually monthly. The purpose of district meetings is to build momentum, provide group continuity, ensure good coordination, and make specific assignments to committee members. The district commissioner reports on the special needs of units and requests the help of operating committees to meet those needs.


 District Commissioner Meetings:

Commissioner Service is the group within the Boy Scouts of America that provides direct service to each Scouting unit (pack, troop, team, crew or ship). Commissioners are experienced Scouters who help chartered organizations and unit leaders to achieve the aims of Scouting by using the methods of Scouting. They help to ensure that each unit has strong leadership and they encourage training, promote the use of the unit committee and encourage a relationship with the chartering organization.
