School Night for Scouting Training

All packs must have at least one representative from their pack attend a School Night for Scouting training.  This training will be offered before our May roundtable, May 7th from 6:30 to 7:30 at Christ the King, 8600 Fremont Ave S. Bloomington.  It was recently brought to our attention that troops would like to take a more active role in SNFS, so I would strongly encourage troops to send a representative as well.  To help facilitate plans in the individual communities, one of the breakout sessions at roundtable will be an opportunity for units to discuss how they will be promoting September 17th as a town, at community festivals and such.  This part is not mandatory to attend, but will be a big help in making plans.

Den Chief Training

We will be holding Den Chief training at our May roundtable on May 7th from 6-8 at Christ the King, 8600 Fremont Ave. S., Bloomington.  If you have Scouts or leaders who would like to attend, please e-mail Erik Martz at  Any Scout who would like to be a Den Chief must attend, we also recommend that any adult who will be working with a Den Chief (both pack and troop adults) attend this training as well. 

Webelos Woods

Webelos Woods is a great chance for Webelos to get a taste of Boy Scouting, while also having the opportunity to earn a variety of pins.  Events last year included: completion of naturalist, forester, geologist and readyman pins, as well as completion on the outdoorsman pin for some.  This year we plan on incorporating partial work on the Fitness and Sportsman pins as well!  Registration is online at  For more information check out the flier!
