Camp Cards are Out!
Friends of Scouting 2021

We need you!

We know there is a lot happening right now—but we’ve checked our records and we’re coming up $28,000 short of our goal.

That means we may not be able to support as many of our Scouts as we’d like. As you know, all money raised stays local and goes to our programs, camps, and Scouting Scholarships & Camperships.

Please make your gift to Friends of Scouting today.  Your donation of any amount will  make a difference in a Scout’s life.

When donating, remember to choose Pathfinder District and enter your Pack/Troop number.  A donation of any amount helps support a Scout:

Text STLMO21 to 91999

P.S. If you’ve already made your gift—THANK YOU. We appreciate your support.

Additional Leader Action Requested:  Please post in your unit’s communications to help us get the word out.

Do you need to take Youth Protection Training (YPT)? Do you need to take your Cub Scout Leader Training? All of this and more can be done while visiting one website!  BSA Learn Center

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.


Hazardous Weather Training

Many volunteers will show up as not trained and that is because this past April National made Hazardous Weather Training a requirement for direct contact leaders. They may take this training online at my.scouting.org or take one of the council training. More dates will be coming out for more opportunities to take this training.

It's Saturday so that means its time to recognize another one of our Superhero volunteers, Laura Hernke from the Boone Trails District!

"My favorite scouting memory so far was the first time I took my son and his den to Beaumont for Webelos Mini Camp. I watched as the boys learned and grew as young men in just a few days. As we were leaving they collapsed in a pile underneath a sign at Camp May that says “To This You Must Return” because they were exhausted from all the great activities that were offered to them. I am looking forward to taking my younger son to his first council camp at this summer.

I don’t know that I have a least favorite memory. Even when an event or activity is not going well or the weather is awful the Scouts always seem to make the best of the situation.

When I signed up for Leader Outdoor Experience(LOE) I had only been a leader for a few weeks. I headed out to spend the weekend outside and camp. The weather was extremely cold and I was not even close to being prepared. I have learned so much about camping since then and I wish I would have been a camper sooner.

Speaking of LOE, it was the most impactful training for me as a new leader. It changed my perspective on camping and made me more open minded to explore what the outdoors has to offer.

I am so happy that my youngest son decided to join Scouts. He was not a sports kid and was having a hard time figuring out what he loved. Scouting has been an amazing experience for him. My youngest son has autism and I have watched him go from sitting on the side lines to fully participating in most activities. Scouting has had a positive impact on my whole family."

Wow. What a story. Thank you Laura for sharing and thank you for all your time and dedication!
