Spring Camporee
Spring Camporee was held at Parish Reservation April 25-27 weekend. Over 100 people enjoyed the perfect weather. There were lots of fun activities: fire building and slingshot competitions, rain-gutter races, skits, and a great awards campfire program that included Webelos Crossover and Order of the Arrow callout. All had a great time!

Fall Recruitment is Just Around The Corner!
2013 was a great membership year for the Black Fox District. We were one of only two districts to earn the GOLD level for Journey to Excellence. This was, in large part due to successful fall recruiting. Now is the time to schedule those roundups in the elementary schools, and open houses in your troops and Venturing crews. Get in touch with Membership Chair, Geeta McMillan, or me to schedule and conduct recruiting events that bring Scouting to more young people and engage more parents in the program. Join roundup teams to spread the Scouting Story!
