We Want to Hear Your Story!

We want to know all about your favorite Scouting memories and experiences. The moments in Scourting that move you, that put a smile on your face, and motivate you to keep doing what you do. We now have an easy, mobile-friendly way to collect all of your stories from wherever you are and whenever you feel like sharing them. 

Go to: www.seattlebsa.org/fromthefieldld to submit your story!

Did you have a once-in-a-lifetime experience on a 50-miler? Did you see a Cub Scout's self-confidence improve after earning an award? Have your own children benefited from what they learned in Scouting even after they left the program? Please, don't keep it to yourself! 

Submit your story before August 28, 2015 and get entered for a chance to win a pizza party for the Scouting unit of your choice. Select story authors may also be chosen to meet Seahawks and Mariners players at the council's annual Friends of Scourting luncheons! 

Share your story at www.seattlebsa.org/fromthefield now!

BSA's New Technology & Tools PDF Print E-mail

Are you using all of the BSA’s new technology tools?

In the last year, the BSA has released new tools to help volunteers reach out to new families and manage all of their Scouting information more easily.  Make sure that you have checked these out and are using them to help your pack, troop, or crew be the best it can be!

BeAScout

  • People interested in joining Scouting can visit this website and use a Google map to locate their nearest pack, troop, or crew.  They can then learn more about the unit, send the unit a message, and even complete youth and adult applications!
  • The first step is to make sure that your unit’s map pin is set up and has current contact information.  Then activate your online applications and approve them as the come in.  Both tasks are accessible by the unit “Key Three”: the unit leader (Cubmaster/Scoutmaster/ Crew Advisor), Chartered Organization Representative, and Committee Chair.
  • Need help with BeAScout?
  1. All the info is here.
  2. PowerPoint on how to set up your map pin is here.
  3. Video on how to activate and approve online applications is here.
