Training is an important part of learning to become an effective leader. The important Scouting position you hold will be easier and more effective once you develop the skills necessary to deliver a quality Scouting program every Scout desires. Every Scout deserves a trained leader. See the council training schedule for a list of additional trainings offered in the council.

Camporee is a weekend campout for troops around the district. Scouts in patrols compete in various competitions and are judged on leadership, teamwork, skill demonstration and Scout spirit. Every troop needs to provide volunteers to support the camporee (e.g., competition, facilities). This year’s camporee promises to challenge the youth leadership. These events cannot happen without each Scout’s competitive spirit and participation. The event is being held at Camp Brosig (1893 Trenckmann Rd. Sealy, TX 77474).

A Scout is reverent. They are reverent toward God. They are faithful in their religious duties and respects the convictions of others in matters of custom and religion.To encourage members to grow stronger in their faith, religious groups have developed the religious emblems programs. Additional resources are available from Programs of Religious Activities with Youth (P.R.A.Y). The Boy Scouts of America has approved of these programs and allows the emblems to be worn on the official uniform. The various religious groups administer the programs. A class for the Catholic Ad Altare Dei (7th graders and older up to 18) and the Catholic Pope Pius XII for (9th graders and older up to 21) is currently being scheduled.
