News from National - BSA to become 'Scouting America'

Posted on May 23 2024 - 5:43pm

In the News - 
The Boy Scouts of America today announced that it will rebrand to Scouting America, reflecting the organization’s ongoing commitment to welcome every youth and family in America to experience the benefits of Scouting. The change will go into effect on February 8, 2025, the organization’s 115th anniversary.
Did you know female youth have been a part of the Boy Scouts of America since the late 1960's?  Of all the countries in the world who are part of the World Scouting Movement (216!) only (9) still use the term 'boy' in their program title? Fun fact - Scouting in America includes over 1 million youth members and more than 628,000 volunteers. World scouting has over 50 million members worldwide!  For more information <Click here> and to learn more about World Scouting and our place in it <click here> and <here>.  Thank you for being a part of it all!

Important Announcement - DBC Fee Effective August 1 (Please Read)

Posted on May 22 2024 - 8:35am

Troop 635 and 1635 Families,  

Many of you saw the message below from the Dan Beard Council that, starting August 1, 2024, they are instituting an $80 annual fee for scouts from 5th grade - 17 years old.  If you didn't receive the message directly, it is copied below for your awareness.  The committee is exploring ways to reduce the fees collected by the troops to keep the Scouting program as affordable as possible, while still being able to deliver a quality program.  We remain committed, as we always have, to ensuring that costs of participating in Scouts don't make the program inaccessible for anyone wanting to participate.  We don't fully know yet how this will be implemented, but will continue to share information as it's received.  In the meantime, don't hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions.  

Ryan Albrecht
T635 Committee Chair
