Training Oppertunity

Posted on Sep 25 2016 - 10:24pm

The Advancement and Recognition Committee is offering two great training opportunities at the next Roundtable on October 13th. In fact, with these two classes, we've got something for just about every adult in your unit!  Please join us for:

  • Merit Badge Counselor Training - Great for both brand new and seasoned Merit Badge Counselors!

  • Adult Leader Recognition Awards - It's amazing what an adult will do for a patch!  You'll be ready to recognize all the other adults in your unit for all the hard work they do AND find out about all the adult awards that you may have already earned and didn't even know it. Many of these awards are available to Cub Scut and Boy Scout Leaders.

Come join us at the October Roundtable!!!

Is CyberCHIP Holding Your Scouts Back?

Posted on Sep 17 2016 - 11:12pm

Do you have Scouts who have not year earned the rank of Scout?

One Scoutmaster recently said that his Scouts have had a hard time earning the CyberCHIP required for the new Scout rank in 2016 due to the need for them to each make a presentation about the CyberCHIP.  On further review of the requirements, we found that they do not individually have to do a presentation. They can do it as a patrol.  What's more scouting than that!

CyberCHIP Requirement #4 for grades 6-8
As an individual or with your patrol, use the EDGE method and mini lessons to teach Internet safety rules, behavior, and “netiquette” to your troop or another patrol. You are encouraged to use any additional material and information you have researched. Each member of the patrol must have a role and present part of the lesson. 

Help them to do a group presentation (think skit... let it be fun) and they can complete this elusive requirement.


Have questions about advancement issues? Please don't hesitate to contact Dave Klein, District Advancement Chair by email at
