North Star District Training


Roundtable is a meeting of leaders and parents to provide ongoing training, announce upcoming activities and news, share program ideas, and network. Roundtable takes place on the first Thursday of each month at Chatham Bible Church (6375 Howdershell Rd, Hazelwood, MO 63042).


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.

Click here for an overview.

To renew your unit charter on-line:

  • Sixty days before your unit’s expiration date, select a renewal processor. This should be someone in your unit who is familiar with the members and leaders of your unit to ensure all information provided through the process is correct.
  • Your unit charter renewal packet is distributed to the unit leadership and includes an access code specifically assigned to your unit.
  • Thirty to forty-five days before your unit’s expiration date, the renewal processor clicks Recharter Now on this webpage and begins the process.
  • When the on-line process is completed, the renewal processor prints the completed charter renewal application.
  • The Unit Leader and the Executive Officer sign the charter renewal application. The signed application along with any individual applications for new youth members or adult leaders, and materials received in the charter renewal packet and all appropriate fees, should then be brought to the Council Service Center, or your district’s charter turn-in meeting.

Eagle and Summit Boards of Review

Eagle Scout is the highest rank attainable in the Boy Scouting program.  Requirements include earning at least 21 merit badges and managing an extensive service project. A Scout must meet with the Eagle Scout Board of Review twice – once to approve the service project and facilitate the application and once to acknowledge completion. It is strongly recommended that the Scout attend a Life-to-Eagle Scout Seminar to understand the application process. Click here for more information about the application process.

The Scout must turn in the project guidelines and final review papers (e.g. merit badge cards and application) to a BSA office no later than two weeks before the final Eagle Scout Board of Review date.

Eagle Scout and Summit Boards of Review are held at 2240 Wedgwood Dr. West, Florissant, MO 63033.  For questions, scheduling an appointment or for more information, contact our District Eagle Board of Review Chairman, Roxie Tiek at (314) 583-1854 or email her at Tiekx6@yahoo.com.  Once a scout calls about their project and it is determined they are ready for a board of review, an appointment will be scheduled within a few days.
