Baden Powel New Scout Program

The Baden Powell Program is designed to introduce your NEW SCOUTS to the world of Boy Scouting. The emphasis is on FUN, TRAINING, SCOUT SPIRIT, and CAMARADERIE! The program will key heavily on Tenderfoot requirements and touch on 2nd Class and 1st Class requirements.

Our team goal is to provide the NEW SCOUTS, an interactive, hands-on, weekend to have fun, along with learning and earning their way to the first ranks of Scouting. This program, along with participation at summer camp, is a great way to get your Scouts to First Class in one year! This program is popular within this district, and has a great reputation outside the district (and council), so be sure to sign your Scouts up early! Participation is capped at 100 Scouts.

New Scouts may complete the minimum requirements for the program. However, as with all Scouting Skills, it’s important to practice, to become proficient. Our policy is not to sign off a Scout’s handbook, since each Troop can have a different level of expected proficiency in a skill before signing off an advancement requirement. A print out of completed requirements will be provided at the end of the program.

The Senior Scouts and their adult assistants are excited to provide your new Scouts a sound program with Tons of Excitement!!!

Items needed to attend the Baden Powell Program:

  • Scout Handbook in zip lock bag.
  • Paper with pen/pencil
  • Water bottle
  • Something to sit on (unless you don’t mind sitting on the ground)
  • Mess kit (plate, cup, fork, knife, and spoon)
  • Small back pack to put everything in
  • Blue Card (signed by Scoutmaster, for Fingerprinting merit badge)
  • Swimming trunks and towel

The program will run from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Saturday (lunch will be provided on Saturday) and 8:00 am till noon on Sunday.

It is our hope that your Scouts will have a great learning experience and have fun as well. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Yours in Scouting
