High Adventure Backpacking

Posted on Jun 16 2017 - 9:50pm

Dear Scouts and Families,

This summer our High Adventure outing is a backpacking trip in the Mt. Zirkel Wilderness, east of Steamboat near the Wyoming state line. It's a beautiful and rugged area that's less visited than the parks and trails in central Colorado. Our trip will begin early on Monday, July 24, returning by noon on Friday, July 28. This will be a big adventure as well as a good opportunity to prepare for Philmont in 2018. As a High Adventure outing it is for Scouts 14 and older.

Getting requirements approved in ScoutBook

Posted on Apr 12 2017 - 5:19pm

ScoutBook is a great way to keep track of requirement completion for merit badges and rank advancement. While it would be possible for a scout to mark the requirements as complete and a leader to mark them as approved completely online, one of the benefits of scouting is interaction between scouts and adults. Therefore, after marking a requirement as complete, the scout should seek out the appropriate leader (scoutmaster for rank advancement and merit badge counselor for merit badges) to discuss the completion of the requirement. Only then can the leader approve the completion of the requirement.
