Adventure Hike

This is our second year for our Annual Adventure Hike!  After last year was such a hit, we decided to expand the opportunities and involvement to include more unit help and support!

We have a great opportunity for your unit to raise money.  Sell advance tickets for the Adventure Hike on May 21.  Units can receive $5 for every person that they enroll for the Hike!  Sign up at the link below.  After that, you will receive a link custom to your unit to send out and promote to friends and family to get them to attend!  This is a great opportunity to raise more money for your units for camp!

The second opportunity is for your unit to have a booth or station at the event! We would love for you to show off your Scouting skills and teach others. Please email Roger Shellman at if you are interested in helping!

We can’t wait to see you all there on May 21st at the Reforestation Camp!

Spring Recruitment

The Bay-Lakes Council kicked off its Spring Recruitment effort with a Zoom training for Cub Scout Packs and Scouts BSA Troops on Wednesday! Many Packs and Troops were represented from across the Council. Leaders, Parents, and Scouts were able to tune in for a joint main session and breakouts for both Cub Scout and Scouts BSA programs. If you missed the training, do not fear, please select from the links below to view either the Cub Scout or Scouts BSA sessions.

We encourage all Packs and Troops to complete our Spring Recruitment Survey.
