Hello Scouts, Scouters, & Scouting Families!

It's hard to believe it's July already, summer is sure flying by! Hopefully you have had the time to get outside and enjoy all the summer in Wisconsin has to offer. Summer for Scouting means lots of Scouts at camp, having fun, learning new skills, & making memories. 


Has Your Pack or Troop Set Your Plans
For the Coming Year?

We have tools to help! There are lots of materials in the Resources section of the Council website. There you will find tools for all programs. Some of those tools are the Council calendar, budget tools, sample calendars, and much more. We have also attached a copy of a Power Point with a bit more information in there.


Popcorn is a great way for your Scouts to fund their adventures, while earning  incentives for even more fun. Registration for the 2022 Popcorn Sale is now live. 

As we did last year, kernel profiles from the previous sale were cleared, so everyone will need to make a new profile. They can use your same information as years past, you just need to select new user the first time around. Here are exact instructions with how to register:

    • Visit the Pecatonica website

If you do not plan on being your unit’s Kernel in 2022, please pass this email along to the appropriate person.
