District Committee Meeting

District Committee meeting is designed for leaders, volunteers and parents to provide ongoing training, announce upcoming activities and news, share program ideas, and network. Committee meeting takes place on the first Thursday of each month at New Life Community Church (1919 State Street, East St. Louis, IL 62205).


Do you need to take Youth Protection Training? Do you need to take your Cub Scout Leader Training? All of this and more can be done with a my.scouting.org account.

Use your membership number on your ID card to sign in. If you are new to Scouting and do not have a membership number, create a new user name and password. Every time you complete a training session, print out the certificate provided and turn in to your Unit Leader, Committee Chairman or council service center.

Youth Protection Training

Youth protection training is mandatory for ALL registered adults and must be re-taken every two years. Youth safety is the No. 1 concern of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA).

Cub Scout Leader Basic Training

For any Cub Scout leader to be a “trained” and wear the “trained” patch on your uniform, you must complete the training course for your specific position (den leader, Cubmaster, committee member, etc.). You can take it at Cub Scout Basic Leader Training or it is also available online.

The Greater St. Louis Area Council is excited to announce the purchase of the brand new "Stealth Tent" to be implemented at all of our #CampLifeSTLBSA camps this summer!

Utilizing state-of-the-art adaptive camouflage technology to blend seamlessly into its surroundings the Stealth Tent will provide our Scouts with the highest level of shelter without disrupting the beautiful scenery at our camps.

We believe this addition will take our already top-notch Summer Camp facilities to the next level! Tell us your thoughts!

We will need to change the motto to be prepared to have an excellent sense of humor. However this would have been far more appropriately posted on April 1.

This is so cool! I can think of so many uses of this especially when taking those SM naps at camp when the Patrols are cooking their meals. Genius!

Wow, thats a great combination of LNT and STEM out there! Can't wait to NOT see these tents this summer!

These are pretty STEM-tastic! Can't wait to "see" them at camp this summer!

Please be careful with those invisible tent ropes so you don't trip!!! And don't forget to wear the new uniform version of the Emperor's New Clothes!

Wow. Taking Leave No Trace to the next level!

This is AMAZING! The old green canvas just ain't what it used to be, and this is a step forward in every way! 100%

Your FOS dollars at work! What is the cost of naming rights?

In Tents !
