Upcoming Scout Nights and Events:


Fleet Week Scout Ship-Ride

Tuesday, July 28, 2015

The U.S. Navy has once again invited all Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, Venturers, and Sea Scouts to participate in fleet week by riding on a Naval ship as it sails from Everett to Seattle. Space is limited. This event is likely to fill up quick, so units are encouraged to send in their RSVP rosters ASAP. Sending in a RSVP roster will initiate the sign up process. Submissions will be considered first come first serve, by the date and time they are received. 

Event Sign-Up Details

- Click here to download the fillable pdf RSVP roster to begin the sign-up process. 

- Once units have submitted their RSVP roster, and they receive confirmation that space is still available, further details for completing the required security paperwork will be provided. 

-Per the request of the Navy, and to maximize the number of youth who can enjoy this unique event, the council will be limited to twenty-four adults.

-Youth will be placed into groups of eighteen, supervised by two adults. Youth from the same unit will be placed together.

-Youth must be 11-18.

-Cost is $5.55 which covers lunch costs aboard the ship. Due to limited space, refunds will not be granted.

-Due to the ship's design and the Navy's rules, Scouts and Adults who use casts, canes, or other mobility assistance devices cannot particpate. 

 

Scout Tour Day at Milepost 31
Join us on May 16th at Milepost 31, the Alaskan Way Viaduct Replacement Program’s information center, for an exclusive Scout Tour Day! Milepost 31 will open early to Scouts an opportunity to explore the ins and outs of Bertha, the world’s largest tunnel boring machine. Scouts will get an insiders perspective on how tunneling works with a guided behind-the-scenes construction tour near the SR 99 work site. This tour, combined with the center’s videos and interactive exhibits make this a not-to-be-missed experience that showcases history in the making. To register, please email merkelm@wsdot.wa.gov with “Scout Tour Day” in the subject line and indicate the number and ages of all those in your party. Registration for these events will be first-come-first-served.

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.
