Nominate someone worthy in your unit by filling out this survey.

Camporee: Postponed to fall. Open to all Scouts BSA troops and Venturing crews. Interpatrol competitions and close location make the event great for new Scouts! Theme this year: S P A C E. More details to come in the following months.

Cub Family Campout: Also postponed to fall. Open to all Cub Scouts and their families at River Bend Park in Rancho Cordova, in partnership with Three Rivers district. Weekend program includes STEM activities, crafts, two dinners, and campfire program. Theme is WEiRd Science. Only $20 for all participants.
