Welcome to the Benjamin Tallmadge District
We're back! Welcome to the Unofficial BT District website - New and Improved!
Council Leadership has decided to suspend all (in-person) Scouting activities through April 30th. This suspension includes all Council, District, and Unit Meetings/Outings/Campouts. However, virtual meetings are allowed and encouraged to continue the Scouting mission.
We also want you to be aware that the Council Service Center, Baiting Hollow Scout Camp, and the Scout Shop will be closed until April 30th.
The National BSA has put out an FAQ about handling Advancements and Eagle Extensions needed because of the Coronavirus.
SIGN UP FOR ONLINE MERIT BADGE CLASSES OFFERED THROUGH OUR COUNCIL.
BT DISTRICT SPRING CAMPOREE POSTPONED!! Unfortunately, we are not looking to reschedule this event later in the spring as we don’t want to pick a May or June date and find that the virus continues further into the year than the health officials thought. We are, tentatively, looking to reschedule the camporee for October 2-4, 2020, also at Southaven County Park. Any unit that already paid a deposit will have that carried over to either the rescheduled Spring Camporee or Webelos Woods. If your unit will not attend either event, we will refund your deposit. More information will come out as it develops.

The McMorris Walk-a-thon / 5 K Run at Baiting Hollow Scout Camp, originally scheduled for Saturday, March 28th has been postponed to FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 27th.
Also, the BEEFSTEAK DINNER scheduled for Friday, May 1 has been postponed.
The District leaders are looking into possible future dates.
