Over 210 Scouts and Leaders from 13 District Units attended this year's Spring Camporee at Southaven County Park. The theme was "Leave No Trace - Outdoor Ethics". The stations were designed with the 7 LNT principles in mind.
Troop 64 (above) took First Place in the scoring of the stations.
Troop 362 was second and Troop 94 was third.
Our thanks to all the Leaders and OA members who helped run the stations throughout the day.

NEW LOCATION FOR ROUNDTABLES THIS YEAR!
We are confirmed for our RT meetings for this school year at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, located at 372 Terryville Road, Terryville. It is across the street from Terryville Elementary School, just up the road from St Gerard Majella. There is ample parking right behind the building The only rule is NO COFFEE or TEA. The start time is the same:
7:15 gathering for a 7:30 meeting.
IMPORTANT: POPULATE YOUR "PIN" !
Currently the primary method for new families and interested youth to find out more about Scouting is the BeAScout.org website. Individuals can visit the site, put in their zip code and find out units in their area. When they click on a unit they are given contact information for that unit so they may either call or send an email to find out more.
We realize many of you may NOT be the Top Leader or Committee Chairperson of the unit but we need you to check out your pin at www.BeAScout.org. Put in your zip code and when the units come up click on your unit and see what information is listed. If the information is the council it needs to be changed to the unit information. Now if it's not populated here is the information you need to populate the pin. Please be aware that Cubmasters, Scoutmasters, Crew Advisors, along with the Unit Committee Chair and the Chartered Organization Representatives are the only volunteers who have first-time access to set up the BeAScout.org pin. These leaders will then be able to set up a total of 6 individuals in the unit to access the editing features of BeAScout.org.
