“Mission Poppable!” 2015 Natchez Trace Popcorn Sale
It’s popcorn time again in the Natchez Trace District! Selling popcorn is a great way to help supplement the unit’s budget allowing your unit to experience even more program during the year. This year’s popcorn selling season will be very exciting with a new fun opportunity. In the Natchez Trace District, there will be ten mystery houses with various gift cards for the first scout to stop by knock on their door. The denominations will be $15, $25 or $40! Clues hinting at the location of these houses will be released weekly throughout the popcorn season. More information regarding the mystery houses will be available when the popcorn sale officially begins in August. Contact Logan McCoy for Popcorn related questions.

2015 Natchez Trace Day Camp
The Natchez Trace District had three successful Cub Scout Day Camps – North Camp, South Camp, and Twilight Camp. Many thanks to the directors of the three camps, the staff of volunteers, Boy Scouts, and all the people behind the scenes that helped make Day Camp a great time for the boys! Over 300 Cub Scouts attended back in June and the boys are already looking forward to 2016 Day Camp!
