Welcome to the Benjamin Tallmadge District
We're back! Welcome to the Unofficial BT District website - New and Improved!
IT was announced at the BT Kickoff in august that the district was contemplating canceling the Fall Camporee and, after some discussions within the district committee, the district has decided that we are going to forego a Fall Camporee for the foreseeable future.
This decision came about for a number of reasons with dwindling attendance, lack of planning time and camporee burnout being the main ones. We currently were the only district that has had 4 camporees on their schedule (Fall, Webelos Woods, Winter and Spring). With units meeting later and later into September, it was getting harder to find a host troop and, units that would attend.
By removing the Fall Camporee from our calendar this year and moving forward the district is hopeful for more interest in attending the other 3 BT camporees.

ONE DISTRICT PAGE ON THE COUNCIL WEBSITE HAS NOT BEEN ENOUGH.
It’s been a little over a year since the Council started a District Page on the Council website: https://www.sccbsa.org/bt But, Volunteer Scouters have complained that there is not enough information there and no event pictures, as promised there would be. So, we’re back for an encore! (unofficially, of course) Look for more content as we build this site back up.
And, Thank You for your support!
